American White Ibises are abundant in the State of Florida. You could easily find them, almost everywhere. I remember, one time I was driving in a residential area looking for an address, when I went past the address number and had to make a u-turn, so I used a house’s driveway to turn when I saw dozens of white ibises coming from the side of the house and walking across the street forming a beeline. I realized then, I didn’t have my camera with me.

This is the most widespread ibis species, breeding in scattered sites in warm regions of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Atlantic and Caribbean regions of the Americas. It is thought to have originated in the Old World and spread naturally from Africa to northern South America in the 19th century, from where it spread to North America.

  1. Our Australian White Ibis is nicknamed the ‘Bin Chicken’ because it, like yours, has in recent years become a city dweller but also a pest where it attacks garbage bins. Much research has been done to find out why this occurred. It is now not so common to see them grazing in their natural wetlands and coastal habitats.

    • We actually do not have that problem. The ibises are abundant in Florida, because, the water canals, and many marshes, lakes and ponds. All perfect for wading birds habitats. Thank you, Ashley. 🙂

  2. Beautiful photos, H.J.! There’s been some excitement over a couple White Ibises showing up in Illinois lately. I think they look much better in Florida.
