White Ibis

Pair of White Ibis make a rest stop in the yard. With the characteristic long reverse-curved beak and black wing tips. One mature and one with a partially dark head and neck that likely fledged in late spring and has not turned completely white. A fairly common bird in Florida wetlands and fields they rarely visit the Backyard - this is the first time I captured them resting on the security light in mid-afternoon. The young Ibis seems to be watching me as much as I'm watching it.
