White Ibis in Maryland

Above and below: A juvenile White Ibis on Assateague Island, Maryland (9/25/2009). This is one of three White Ibis that flew over Bayside Assateague in the morning flight - one adult and two juveniles. Although White Ibis breed in Virginia, this species remains extremely rare in Worcester Co. This juvenile was tracked down at the Life of the Marsh Trail, where it was tossing back mummichogs amidst Laughing Gulls and other waders. Click the third photo below for larger size.
