Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, dark, forest-dwelling ibis. Note the blue bare skin on the face and the heavily spotted breast and neck. Found in the understory of moist rainforest. Very shy and generally scarce bird. The vocalization is a honking, two-parted goose-like call. Similar to Olive Ibis, but smaller and slimmer, with heavy spotting, blue facial skin, and a different call. Somewhat like Hadada Ibis, but much smaller, and found in forest rather than more open habitats.
