Well Finally, A Clean One!
I’ve been giving the white ibis kind of a hard time lately calling them ‘muddy ibis’ and other unflattering terms because of their propensity to be filthy.
They spend so much walking around in mud, which gets their feet muddy. They’re constantly sticking those long curved bills in mud, which gets their faces dirty. Plus they somehow always manage to get mud and dirt all over their feathers.
So it was refreshing when earlier this week I took some flight shots of a passing white ibis and it really was white! And clean! Even its’ feet!
Wow. Amazing. This guy is truly deserving of the name….White Ibis. 🙂
