We saw this White Ibis at Blue Run Park in Dunnellon on one of our hikes this month.
It had such beautiful Spring mating plumage...
except for his beak that looked like it had been dipped in tar!
The swamp is rich in nutrients and he didn't have a napkin handy.
So excuse the mess and enjoy the photos. (it's all good for them!)
We saw this colorful Lantana that day too.
(if you look closely, you'll see a white spider in the center)
We are seeing some amazing birds here in Florida this Spring!
I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE
and I’d Rather B Birdin’.
