White Ibis

White Ibis

St. Petersburg, Florida

A couple of White Ibises taking a stroll down by my house. Their movements always strike me as being almost cartoonish…then there are the¬†Wood Storks. Those guys are very interesting…

  1. every year i go to disney with my kids. we see the ibis everywhere. but how to you pronounce the first letter “i”? long i as in “eye” or short i as in “hit”? the university of miami has the ibis as it’s mascot. the reason is because the bird is the last one to leave when a hurricane approaches and the first thing to return after the storm is gone. it’s a symbol of toughness.
