August 27 – BOTD – White Ibis V2

Juvenile White Ibis

Here is my entry for Granny Shot It’s  Bird of the Day (BOTD) challenge.

I know that I have already given you some White Ibis BOTD photos this month, but I stumbled on this guy in my images & remembered the day I spent with my friend, Morgan at an art festival in Tampa. The images I shared on August 16-BOTD were adults. The top photo is a juvenile who is starting to turn white. I was just a few feet away from this one. There were several at park near the Hillsborough River that day, moving all around where we walked. They kept flying around us & through us literally. Example is below. LOL! My friend Morgan was not amused!

  1. My Mom lives in FL not too far from where you are, and the birds there are so used to humans! I was stunned the day we went to the beach at how close I could get to some of them.

    This Ibis is amazing! I’ve never seen one, but I hope to the next time I visit my Mom. I hope it’s in the month they’re there! I also long to see Spoonbills there, and you tell me Cardinals are there! OMG! I need to come when they’re there!

    • Ibisis & cardinals are here year round. In order to be guaranteed to see a spoonbill is to go south down to Merritt island. Some of the best birding down there is December/January.

      • That’s what I’ve heard and read too. One day I’ll have to make a winter trip to see my mom and do some birding.

        Thank you so much for the information and conversation! 😀
