Gull-billed Tern

This bird was seen only in flight. It was a medium sized white tern stockier than the nearby Forster's Terns with broad, all-white wings and a short white tail with a much smaller fork than a Forster's Tern. The bill was all black and heavy looking. The head was white with some black near the eye..

Glossy Ibis

White-faced Ibis

Continuing bird at this location. I had a partially obstructed view, because of blowing, swaying grasses, of this dark Ibis which was similar in size and shape to a Glossy Ibis. It was resting and preening within a flock of Glossy Ibis about 50 yds from the wildlife drive. I was able to see the red iris several times when the bird turned its head to the side. There was a also a thin whitish border around the forehead and eyes. Because my view was partially obstructed, I could not see the leg color. The bird remained in the same spot preening during my stay. My partially obstructed images show the bird's red iris.

Bank Swallow

Small brown swallows seen within a large gathering of tree swallows along the wildlife drive. The birds could easily be seen either perched on the wildlife drive or on nearby bushes and grasses. The Bank Swallows were smaller than the Tree and Barn Swallows and they had all brown upperparts. The underparts were white with a defined brown band across the upper chest. There were a few juv. Tree Swallows that had a diffuse brownish-gray chest band but these bands were not distinct. The call was a short buzz. The number was the max I was able to count at once but there could have been more.
