White Ibis in Sewall’s Point this morning. My husband and I were out for a ride. I had my camera in the basket of my beach bike.

A wading bird of the deep South, the striking White Ibis is frequently seen on lawns looking for large insects as well as probing for prey along the shoreline.

Wikipedia: A field study late in the Florida nesting season revealed that on an average day, adult American white ibis spent 10.25 hours looking for food, 0.75 hours flying, 13 hours resting, roosting, and attending to their nests.

They are pretty calm around people.
