The White Ibis is an un-mistakeable part of the Florida wildlife landscape.

A common wading bird, it is highly socialable, roosting, feeding and traveling in flocks or large colonies. The White Ibis fly's in lines or "V" formations, and can reach 24 to 30 in. in heigth.

Their curved bills are used to dig and move mud to search for food, primarily in marshes and mud flats, which consists of insects, crustaceans, marine worms and even larger prey.

They nest well above ground and can lay upt to 5 eggs in a clutch, and migrate to breeding grounds as far as South America.
