White Ibis Feeding at Viera Wetlands

The most common bird I encounter is the white ibis as I see them everywhere I go including my own yard. Watching white ibis feed and interact is fascinating for reasons I can’t easily explain. They get all possessive and show off when they get a meal, even though their behavior causes others to try to take it away. Their snowy white appearance, redish pink faces and steely blue eyes make them one of my favorite subjects.
