I learned more today, while making sure to properly identify this Everglade’s bird. It is a Glossy Ibis. Prior to today I was unaware there was such a thing as a black colored Ibis; usually they are white with the distinctive curved orange beak. Once again nature contines to amaze me.

Birds are the easiest animals to observe in the Everglades because of their proliferation. On the left is a Showy Egret; on the right is a White Ibis. I pinch myself whenever I visit the Everglades because prior to these visits I only observed these beautiful creatures in a midwest zoo. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
