White Ibis
These ibis typically feed in shallow water, but here we saw them foraging on mowed lawns and rain puddles. They usually feed on crustaceans and insects but here they were probing in the dirt, presumably going after earthworms. One particularly bold individual entered the cafe bar where I was sitting to beg for scraps. This is an adult showing geranium-red facial skin. Formerly classified with the storks in the Ciconiiformes, they are now included with the herons and pelicans in Pelicaniformes. Sometimes called "American White Ibis."
