Two glossy ibis with a moorhen looking on.
Glossy ibis eating by himself.
I had read last week on Pinellasbirds.com that there had been several glossy ibis hanging around the pond across from the waste plant. I had looked last week while driving to to get lunch. Yesterday I saw them. There were 3 of them eating close to the street. Of course I pulled over and snapped a few pictures. Glossy ibis look black from far away but they actually have a reddish brown body with dark green wings. The colors seems to glow in the sun. They are pretty rare to see here. I've only seen a handfull in the Tampa Bay area. There's always so many white ibis but very few glossy ones. It will be interesting to see how long they stay at that pond.
