The White Ibis

Some birds mind their own business, unless necessity demands coexisting with the others. The White Ibis are often seen secluded or positioned at a far distance. They travel in groups and always set to take off from any danger.

Eudocimus albus

  • Glossy Ibis
  • White-faced Ibis
  • Roseate Spoonbill

Close Encounters

The White Ibis is not afraid of humans beings, only cautious until familiar. Like human beings, it studies it’s environment and those that occupy it. They also take flight at a twitch or sudden movement.

Feeding Behavior

Forages by walking slowly in shallow water, sweeping bill from side to side and probing at bottom. Also forages on land, especially on mud or in short grass. Finds food by touch while probing, by sight at other times, seizing items from surface. White Ibises may steal food from each other and, in turn, have food stolen from them by larger species.
