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

Figure 4. The endangered Wood Stork (Mycteria americana) is larger than the Sacred Ibis, and the head, neck and bill are much lighter and marked with gray and tan. Notice that the black outer feathers of the wings can be seen even when the wings are folded. Credit: Steve A. Johnson, University of Florida, 2005
