Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rather small ibis, widespread in South America but with an unusual distribution: found on either side of the Amazon basin. Dull blackish with iridescent green and blue in the wings; most obvious feature is the bare pinkish face and bill. Legs pink. Found in flocks, sometimes numbering in the hundreds. Forages in open pastures, fields, and wetlands.
