Greetings everyone! Decided I would give my loyal readers a break from all the Halloween posts as of late and bring you something new and refreshing. Part of this is to buy myself a little bit of time because there is an upcoming Halloween post to cover the Haunted Trail night walkthrough – can you say a butt load of pictures!?! It took forever to get those images processed and queued up for publishing. While those are aging properly in wooden barrels, feast your eyes on this intriguing bird.
Pretty cool eh? Kind of a cross between that spoonbill you saw previously (link here) and a Stork. Wait… did that say Stork – that reminds me I have some Georgia surprises coming hehehe. But I digress. This colorfully paletted bird is a White Ibis. Your probably could have guessed the first part of that name, but the second part might be a bit more difficult to pull out of the air.
Hit the jump to read a bit more about this bird and maybe learn a few interesting facts.
