White-faced Ibis

December 08, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

The White-faced Ibis is a mega rare bird in Nova Scotia whereas its first cousin the Glossy Ibis is an annual regular. Look for the complete eye ring especially above the eye and the reddish mask between the eye and bill.

This bird is not shy but like many waders who forage in marshes they are not always close to the observer and will certainly fly if you try to set up a bazooka lens on a tripod. Fortunately this White-faced Ibis wandered by after all the birders left the scene. Patience pays off!

When I first started nature photography in Manitoba the Glossy Ibis was the rare bird and the White-faced Ibis was the annual regular.
