Not 100% sure about the ID. This guy is hanging out at the palo alto baylands preserve, here in bay area.







These are pretty heavy crops. Taken with 10D & 100-400L, hand held, IS off.

It MUST be a White Faced Ibis, since they're the only Ibis on the West Coast; although the beak color looks more like the Glossy. If it is a White Faced, than it's an immature one.

Nice shot, bobby, these birds are quite entertaining lookers, I can never get over their bent bill. Against the clear blue sky this one appears to be especially dirty-looking and prehistoric. Cool stuff.

Thanks everyone. He was in the mud all the time, too far for me to take any shots. Then while I was shooting terns, I saw him fly by me & I was able to take some shots.
