This bird showed up in our area several days ago. It is extremely rare for our region. I took these shots at 6:30am as the sun was coming up. The morning light truly allows the bird's colorful plumage to be displayed.

Thanks for the comments. Glossy ibises breed primarily in the Carribean , Florida and more recently along the US north Atlantic coast. While their range has been expanding there has in recent years been a decline in some of the populations however the bird is not at risk. There have even been reports from the Canadian Maritimes. We have had several reported sightings this spring in Newfoundland.
