Muddy Ibis

A white ibis knocks back a small fish it just plucked out of the water in the salt marsh among the oyster beds yesterday afternoon.

Whenever I see one of these guys looking all filthy I can’t figure out how the bright white egrets manage to stay so clean while the ibis often get covered in marsh mud.

Oh well, the ibis are fun and unusual bird and I always enjoy watching them at ‘work’.
