White Ibis coming in for a landing. These birds are all white except for black-tipped wings.
They are wading birds, but also lawn birds around here.
This flock is going to work on a nice green lawn at the southern end of Sewall’s Point, in the neighborhood known as High Point.
White feathers, pink legs and bills, blue eyes.
Probing for insects. I have seen them eat snails in my backyard too.
Lawn aeration courtesy of these members of the family Threskiornithidae, the ibises and spoonbills.
We see flocks of White Ibis often, wading in shallow water, walking on lawns, flying overhead.
High Point should have an ibis on its welcoming pillar.
Nearby, a peekaboo glimpse of the Indian River Lagoon and a Great Egret.
A block away, one of the neighborhood predators.
