    Details: Ibis long curved bill, Larger than other wading marsh birds, dark brown almost black body, some reddish coloration seen as light changed with cloud coverage around head and behind neck, black legs, too far to see eye color or lore. No noticeable white around face. Ibis long curved bill Grey. One bird appeared to have lighter speckling of feathers around head neck and face. Based on location in Hawaiian Islands and no previous sightings of glossy reported here, I would say this as 1st year Western White-Faced Ibis as the two species are virtually indistinguishable in non-breeding plumage and 1st years, and at this distance.
