Plegadis chihi

Common Names: White-faced ibis
Category: Birds

It is very similar to the Glossy Ibis in its non-breeding plumages, but the plumage color is somewhat warmer and breeding adults have a pink face bordered with white, a grey bill, and redder legs. Adults have red eyes year-round, whereas Glossy Ibises have dark eyes. Juveniles of the two species are nearly identical.

This species breeds colonially in marshes, usually nesting in bushes or low trees.
