WEC267: Florida's Introduced Birds: Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus)

Figure 3. The White Ibis (Eudocimus albus) is smaller than the invasive Sacred Ibis, and is nearly solid white with a reddish bill, legs, and feet. The head and neck are covered with white feathers. Only the tips of the wings are black, and the black wing tips are usually hidden unless the bird is in flight. Credit: Steve A. Johnson, University of Florida, 2005
