White Ibis

White Ibis, Black Point Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge near Titusville, Florida (USA). It is amazing how close you can get to the larger waders at Merritt Island NWR. As you drive Black Point Wildlife Drive and the other dike roads of the refuge the birds are often right there, in the little canals and wetlands 20-50 feet from the road. This is an experience relatively unique to Florida. In my experience, you have to work much harder to photograph these birds anywhere else. Florida has both White and Glossy Ibis (with an occasional White-faced in the mix). Again, in my experience the Glossy outnumber the White, at least at Merritt Island, by at least a factor of 2, but both are among the most numerous waders in these waters.
