White-faced Ibis

I came across these White-faced Ibis the other morning while driving through the farmlands north of Panhandle, Texas. This little playa has nearly dried up, but they seemed to really enjoy rooting through the mud. They certainly have the nose for it. They’re called White-faced Ibis because the adults lores (area lining the base of the bill) turn white during breeding season.White-faced Ibis (23) (1024x684) White-faced Ibis (24) (1024x696) White-faced Ibis (25) (1024x684) White-faced Ibis (26) (1024x721) White-faced Ibis (27) (1024x683) White-faced Ibis (28) (1024x674)
