Walk in small groups along the shores of the lakes.
It is found in flooded grasslands, lakes or swamps, usually with mud and grass areas, from Colombia, except Peru and Chile to northeast Argentina.
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 :)
