The American white ibis (eudocimus albus) can be found from Maryland to Florida in the southeastern United States, and along the gulf coast states to Mexico, Central America, and northern South America in Columbia and Venezuela, as well as the Caribbean. Look for it in the wetlands of the cypress, hardwood and mangrove swamps, as well as the freshwater and saltwater marshes along the coasts.

 

It is a plump, white bodied bird measuring from 22" to 26.8" in length with a wingspan between 35" and 41." The black wing tips show distictvely during flight. They have pink facial skin and a long down-curved bill that is also pink. In non-breeding adults, the bill and legs are a bright red-orange. During the first ten days of the breeding season the skin on the face and the bill darkens to a deep pink and the legs turn an almost purple-tinted red. These then fade to a paler pink and the tip of the bill becomes blackish. Immature birds are a mottled brown and white.

The American white ibises diet consists almost exclusively of crustaceans and small fish with a preference for crayfish. They also eats large insects, frogs, lizards, snakes and other prey that gets too close. You will typically see them probing in soft ground and shallow water with their beak for their prey which they detect mainly by touch.

 

This is a very social bird and will often be seen in large flocks.

The glossy ibis (plegadis falcinellus) is the most widespread Ibis species in the world inhabiting the warm regions of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. It likes wetlands, swamps, bottomlands, mangroves, flooded plains and fields, as well as freshwater and saltwater marshes.

 

It is a medium sized wading bird measuring from 18.9" to 26" in length with a wingspan between 31" and 41." It has a long down-curved brownish bill, long legs and a dark body. Breeding adults have a dark metallic reddish-brown body and dark almost black wings that shine with a bronze metallic green tint in the right light. Their facial skin is dark bordered above and below the eyes in cobalt blue. In non-breeding adults, the border around the eyes is a light blue-grey and their overall coloring is a darker duller brown with white streaks on the head and neck. The immature glossy ibis is similar to the non-breeding adult but with variable flecks of white that may show up on the forehead, neck or throat.

The glossy ibis is a tactile forager eating mainly insects and crustaceans that is finds by probing with its long down-curved bill in shallow water and soft soil. It also eats some small fish, lizards, snakes and nestling birds. It also eats seeds like rice at times when it is plentiful.

 

They like to nest in wetlands with emergents vegetation like cattails, reeds, and bullrushes.
