American White Ibis - juvenile

Eudocimus albus


The juvenile White Ibis has largely brown plumage and only the rump, underwing and underparts are white. Adults are white with black wingtips. They feed on small aquatic prey such as insects and small fishes, preferring crayfish if available in its habitat. Reproduction rates have decreased over the years due to human pollution from untreated waste.


Southeastern U.S. south to Venezuela. Shallow coastal marshes, wetlands and mangrove swamps.


I was wading across the river when I noticed these two beautiful young birds casually observing me :)
