Ibis

The White Ibis is a very common bird in South Florida, but until recently we had not seen them around the lake in our backyard.

Last week a flock of Ibis finally found our little watering hole and are now frequent visitors.

This little one was kind enough to pose for me.

The Ibis is a spiritually significant bird. In ancient Egypt, the ibis was sacred to the goddess Isis and venerated as the spirit of learning and wisdom.
