White Ibis

White Ibis
Eudocimus albus

One of the great finds for many visiting birders here in La Paz, is the easy access to occasional White Ibis. They wander in and forage in the shallows right along the Malecon ( large formal sidewalk along the water front) that runs the length of the center part of La Paz. This area is an easy half mile flight from the mangroves that are along the Magote, or long sand spit that helps form the bay in from of La Paz.

This is a first year juvenile both standing and in flight.....

and here is the adult in flight. Note the very prominent black wing tips.
