The light was just right for showing off the metallic hues in the plumage of this Glossy Ibis. It’s a medium-sized bird, about 19-26 inches long, with a 3-foot wingspan. This species is found along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts in the U.S. and throughout Florida. The long, decurved bill is used to probe the mud for food. Ibis eat a lot of crayfish and, in Florida, it’s reported that they also eat lots of water snakes. This photo was also taken at Lake Toho.
