Thanks JenKnight, I live about 200 yards from this marsh! Just have to be careful wading through the wheat, rattlesnakes are out!

Cody: good call on the white-faced ibis, I was thinking glossy but you made me look closer.
Evelyn: looks like you're having a great trip!

The closest birds are White-faced Ibis, next row back is the Black-necked Stilts, behind that is a bird from the family recurvostridae, the American Avocet in lovely alternative plumage!

Maybe something on Threskiornithidae...
