About the White-faced Ibis
Also known as: White-faced Glossy Ibis
White-faced Ibis

The White-faced Ibis is a species of wading bird found in central and western parts of North America. Birds winter across Mexico and parts of Central America. A separate non-migratory population lives in eastern South America.

White-faced Ibises are colonial breeders, building their nests in short trees or bushes, always near marshes. They feed on a variety of invertebrates that they find by probing into sand or soil with their bills. White-faced Ibises are related to and highly resemble Glossy Ibises.

The world population of White-faced Ibises is increasing, and as of November 2014 their conservation status is least concern.
