Bare-faced Ibis

Phimosus infuscatus

Description:

Also known as the Whispering Ibis, is a species of bird in the Threskiornithidae family. It has opaque black feathers with greenish reflections.

Walk in small groups along the shores of the lakes.

Habitat:

It is found in flooded grasslands, lakes or swamps, usually with mud and grass areas, from Colombia, except Peru and Chile to northeast Argentina.

Notes:

I have always seen this ibis at the zoo and I thought it was in their collection, but last friday I realized it was not. Its actually a wild ibis that comes for food and likes to hang around with a group of flamingos, a grey crowned crane and a blue crane :)
