White-faced Ibis in flightWhite-faced Ibis in flight

White-faced Ibises (Plegadis chihi) breed and nest in the freshwater marshes around the Great Salt Lake. Generally they migrate south for the winter though this winter there were a few that stayed at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area. That may be due to the very mild winter we had.

I photographed this White-faced Ibis in flight last fall at Farmington Bay WMA as it came in for a landing.
