Well we don’t call them “muddy ibis” for nothing. Just look at the feet and face of this guy as he comes in for a landing in the salt marsh earlier this week. I’m actually rather surprised he managed to keep those feathers as white as they are, usually they get those mucked up as well.
But I really like these birds, they are always active and fun to watch and generally don’t have a lot to say. About the most I’ll hear from an ibis is the occasional low grunt.🙂
