338 : White Ibis

White Ibis - Eudocimus albus 

This is a large heavy Ibis with a wingspan of 42 inches. This individual is still molting into its adult plumage which is all snow white with a scarlet bill and black wingtips.

Excitement levels are high  at the moment as I contemplate the approaching Summer and various trips. I find myself without too much to say just now about the birds so I will leave it to the photos. A small pile of gear is starting to pile up for Malaysia. Deet, flash, guide books, leech socks. Awesome.
