Ibis at Sandpiper pond


Peter Feldman
 

Played golf at Sandpiper yesterday and on 18 at the pond we saw a solitary Ibis.

It was shy and the light was fading so the photos aren’t much help.

It looked like a Glossy Ibis, iridescent green and rust coloring, but was more likely a White Faced Ibis.

I didn’t see the white on it’s face, but my friend said he saw white.

I had never seen an Ibis in the wild, but my friend has seen many in Africa and was more confident on the ID.
