We took a day trip to Canaveral National Seashore and saw a field of black birds.
Hundreds or possibly thousands of what appear to be
solid black Ibis!
Of course I couldn’t wait to look at my photos and then do a google search.
We thought it might be a rare sighting and it WAS!
Of course there was nowhere to pull over for better photos but I cropped and sharpened these photos. We knew what we had seen but just couldn’t believe it.
When I did a google search I found a question and answer forum on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website HERE. It was interesting to read that there have been a few sightings here in Florida but always just one or two birds at a time.
The field had just been cut and they were eating all day. We saw them in the morning on the way to the beach and again on the way home in the late afternoon. I’m sure they were migrating! What an amazing sight and one we won’t ever forget!
Looking for fences, I saw something incredible!
