Muddy Ibis

Even though this bird is technically a white ibis, we don’t call them ‘muddy’ ibis for no reason.

These wading birds often feed by sticking their long curved bill down into the marsh mud in search of little crabs and eels.

They have almost perpetually muddy faces and feet and this guy seen flying across the salt marsh yesterday is no exception.
