Stunning. I have never seen one of those. Looks ... different ... from the ibis around here.

We have a couple of these in our local zoo (in a very, very large enclosure with an enormous net over it) but it's great to see one in their proper habitat.

That is an amazing looking bird. I have only seen the Scarlet type before and that was down in Florida.

Happy New Year!

Wow that is new one for me, thanks for sharing. I think I will eventually see 10 000 birds, lol, unfortunately on the photos, but I think it is good enough for me, lol. Thanks for sharing again Max-e. Anna :)

I think if I were a bird, I'd probably be some kind of weird sort like this fellow. LOL!
We get such an education on your blog!

A face only a mother could love! But then it would probably look at me and think the same thing.
