Ibis In The Afternoon

This afternoon we were watching a couple of white ibis fishing in the salt marsh during low tide. They were picking out little minnows, glass shrimp, and these tiny transparent eels. I suppose if the ibis eats enough of this seafood combo, it gets full, but in any case this one seemed quite pleased with it’s little snack!

      She does look a bit porky doesn’t she? Kind of like a fat hen, but don’t tell her I said that. 🙂

    • He was out there with his friend and they were popping down little marine crustaceans like crazy. I guess if you eat enough of even the little stuff it fills you up.
      Thanks Adrian!
