A field full of Ibises


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Sun Advocate nature photographer John Serfustini discovered a convention of white-faced ibises last Thursday in a field off Carbonville Road about a mile north of Price. The birds prefer a marshland habitat, but found a breakfast buffet of bugs here that was worth a stop-over. These are wading birds, standing about 18 inches tall with wingspans of about a yard. They use their long beaks to probe for insects. As the photos demonstrate, these are gregarious birds that enjoy each other's company.
