Ibis in South Carolina

Yes, more birds! At first we saw them flying high over the pond just above the trees recognizable by their long curved bill. Unusual sight for us 'Northerners."


Next we saw them crossing the open lawn from the nearby marsh to the pond right in front of us as we took our walk around the pond. Juvenile colors shown here.


Then we saw a lovely adult in the marsh to the left of us.

Barry this bird is not in my neck of the woods...it is about 600 miles away on my dear Pinkney Island.
