Beautiful flock of ibises seen in the southern Florida glades. Young ibises have straight bills for the first two weeks of their lives and exhibit sexual dimorphism (males have longer bills).
Ibises are most abundant in Florida, but also occur in neighboring states, as well as the Caribbean and Mexico. The ibis' range extends down south all the way to Venezuela. They're partial to wetlands and mangroves.
