American White Ibis (Eudocimus albus) in flight at Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Delray Beach, Florida.
The American White Ibis (Eudocimus albus) is a species of bird in the ibis family Threskiornithidae. It occurs from the mid-Atlantic and Gulf Coast of the United States south through most of the New World tropics. This ibis is a medium-sized bird with an overall white plumage, bright red-orange down-curved bill and long legs, and black wing tips that are usually only visible in flight. Males are larger and have longer bills than females. The breeding season range runs along the Gulf and Atlantic Coast, and the coasts of Mexico and Central America. Outside the breeding period, the range extends further inland in North America and also includes the Caribbean. (credit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Wh............)
