Glossy Ibis

Plegadis falcinellus


I was confused about this one being Glossy v White eyed, but most literature I read says this powder blue above and below eye is the Glossy. If anyone can clarify this?

You have the ID correct :) White-faced has the white face (obviously) and the white wraps around the back of the eye. Glossy has the blue face and doesn't wrap around the back of the eye
