Great shot! I don't think you're likely to find one of these here in the Pacific Northwest.

I would not want to be nipped by that beak.

Lowell, great shot of this exotic bird. Ibis never get this far north. Thanks for you comment. It gave me a laugh.

Oh well done, these birds tend to run off if anything gets close to them.

Cool looking bird! I have only seen them in photos but maybe someday I'll see one in the flesh.

What an elegant and beautiful ibis! This post fits to the New Year. “Ko-haku”, red and white, are the colors used for auspicious occasions in Japan.
