White Ibis

White Ibis
The white Ibis is an ibis that lives in the tropical and subtropical regions of North, Central and South America. They are found in a variety of habitats including coastal wetlands and mangrove swamps. The white ibis is a tactile hunter. They can often be seen wading through the water with their long beak held slightly open scraping the bottom. When they feel prey swimming through the water they grab it with their open beak. Prey typically consists of fish, aquatic insects and crustaceans. Crayfish are their favorite prey.

 Welcome to Tuesday Tweets! To join in the fun just post a photo of a bird and then link it by here by using the handy dandy link below. Then make sure you visit other sites to do a little bird watching.
