No Escargot Today…Thanks

Two days ago I was watching this white ibis feeding in the salt marsh during low tide. At one point he pulled out a snail but apparently was not in the mood for an escargot appetizer because he promptly dropped the unwanted mollusk right back into the water. I guess it must have needed garlic!

  1. He almost looks sleepy. I wonder how sensitive their bills must be to feel the shell so far up. It’s all very interesting. Love the colors, and the reflection.
