American White Ibis
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.
