Subject: White faced Ibis on Little St Simons Island
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
An immature white faced ibis was discovered yesterday on Little St Simons Island by David Sibley. I had the good fortune of seeing the bird yesterday evening. Staff there will be trying to get photographs of the bird today. I saw the bird at close range and the red eye was easily visible. The bird also had a very distinct golden color when compared to nearby glossy ibis.
