Incoming White Ibis

A white ibis landing in a tide pool on Estero Island in Florida. Such odd looking and almost cartoon-like birds. I can really see the connection between these birds and the dinosaurs. Their blue eyes and strangely curved beaks are so striking. The black feathers are only visible when they are in flight. Thanks so much to all my Flickr friends for your kind words and support. They have been most appreciated.
