The ibis is a cool looking bird that anyone who has lived in,visited, or just passed through Southwest Florida has surely seen. The ibis is a medium-sized white bird with a very distinctive curved beak used for rooting around in the mud. See the video below.
Immature ibises are brown until they grow up and their feathers change to the full white color. There’s alot of immature ibises around this time of year.
Where can I see them?
The first recommendation is look up. If that doesn’t work, several large flocks of ibises head to Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers around sunset to feed and nest for the night.
