White ibises hanging around in my neighborhood
This summer I started noticing a small flock of white ibises that seemed to have adopted my neighborhood as their home. I've lived here for many years and I've never really seen them in my yard because they are generally found wading in water while they look for food and there is no lake or pond in my neighborhood. It's been fun seeing them walk around in people's yards looking for something to eat. Sometimes there is a group of about 10 or 12 together and sometimes just two. I saw two standing on my neighbor's chain link fence one day and used my zoom lens to get the first two shots. They almost looked like they were having a conversation. Later on in the day, I took the last two pictures of a couple walking around in my back yard looking for a meal. I couldn't tell what the one in the last shot had in its mouth, but it was swallowed pretty quickly after I took the picture.
All three of my grandkids started school last Monday, so I'm back to blogging. Now to get out and get some new photos!
