Native to Southern Florida the Native American folklore tells us that they are the last to seek shelter prior to a hurricane and the first to emerge when danger is done. The University of Miami adopted the Ibis as their masot because of this bravery.

Hunting takes over ten hours of each day, looking for small crustaceans, fish and insects. For more learning click here.

This one’s eyes followed me as I took these photographs, but remained “ok” with me as long as I kept my distance.
