The Juvenile White Ibis is Not as “Bright” as The Adult

The Juvenile White Ibis is Not as “Bright” as The Adult

I hadn’t seen a White Ibis this year until yesterday and I was very happy to come across a juvenile and an adult.

The White Ibis live along the East Coast of the US from North Carolina down into Mexico.

Notice the juvenile is mostly brown, with a white belly. As he matures the white will become more patchy…

Here is an Adult White Ibis. They are a very bright white.

Eats mostly crabs and crawfish, but will also eat snakes, insects, frogs and small fish.
