 White ibises are everywhere.  But, when they are young they have blotchy white/brown bodies.

Roseate spoonbills are favorites around here.  Note the pale pink and hairy neck and head of the juvenile in front and the darker color and bald head and less hairy neck of the adult behind.

Wood storks often raise a wing to shade the water and help them see the small fish on which they feed.

Back to Connecticut for the holidays.

How intelligent are those Wood Storks. Back to the cold for the holidays, Jack.

Jack, I am always impressed by your Florida bird pictures. The Ibis and Roseate Spoonbills look terrific. Safe travels back to the land of ice and snow, and a Merry Christmas to you.
