White-faced Ibis Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: It's always a treat to see a White-faced Ibis migrating through my part of southeastern South Dakota. They're the kind of exotic-looking waterbird most people don't associate with South Dakota, but not only do they migrate through my part of the state, the breed in other locations to the north. My favorite photo of the species, however, is this shot of a White-faced Ibis taking flight.  It was taken right after dawn at Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado, in June of 2018.  Love the light, wing position, and background with all the cattails.
