White-faced Ibis

One of the full time residents of the Baja, and the La Paz area is the White Ibis. This all white bird has a close relative, in the White-faced Ibis, which is very dark in color, with a greenish gloss on the main body. When this bird is in it's breeding plumage, it has a white vertical crescent on the face.

While there is an occasional White-faced Ibis that summers over, the bulk of the ones that we see are migrants that return in the winter. While in San Jose Del Cabo last week, I got to photograph a few of these beautiful birds.
