American White Ibis.jpg

With its distinctive brilliant white plumage and contrasting black primary feathers, the white ibis (Eudocimus albus) is a striking, unmistakable wading bird. This curious species may also be recognised during the breeding season by its bright pink face, bill and legs. At other times of the year these body parts are all pale orange. The juvenile white ibis is mostly brown, but has white underparts, dark legs, and a pink bill with dusky bands.
