Bird I.D. Please

Postby jpostx3 » Thu May 09, 2013 7:32 pm

So we have been getting hit hard with rain the last couple weeks and everything seems to be getting flooded. Well, out by my girlfriends parents house everywhere you look has turned more or less into a wetland. Well four of these guys showed up and have been staying around the last couple days. I tried lookin for pictures of them on-line, but haven't seen anything that resembles them at all. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right, or they are not native to this area at all? I guess if they are fairly rare I need to break out my Canon and take some good pictures of them. I just always have my phone with me and not my actual camera. Hope you can tell by this picture. Thanks!

Glossy Ibis from what I can tell from the picture.

I googled that bird and that is without a doubt the birds we have been seeing there. Thank you very much. It's a cool looking bird at that. Diffidently nothing I've seen around here before.

It's a goonie bird. Don't shoot it.
