Glossy Ibis and Their Iridescence Feathers

.

I felt lucky two mornings ago at the 10,000 Islands NWR’s Marsh Trail, arriving to find three Glossy Ibis, separated and very busy foraging the wetlands.

Continually moving and working the waters, it didn’t take very long before one of the Glossy Ibis came in closer for some great photos.  Walking up on a tiny ‘island’ to take a break, the Glossy Ibis proceeded to shake off excess water and fluff up for some preening.  And the iridescent colors shined!

I narrowed the preening photo shoot to sharing these five photos, and that was hard.  😏

Are you ready to see my iridescent feathers?
