In fligtht...

Not the best photo, by far! But it gives more detail of the young "lost" bird passing through our field. The white on its back will perhaps give more idea of exactly what type bird it might be.
Many of you yesterday suggested an Ibis, and it does certainly fit those features. Thank you for your keen eye and insight!!
I do wonder what got it so off course!?
I'm a bit sad for the bird now, I hope he finds his way back to where he should be.
A lovely experience for you though and a rare photo opportunity.

It is an ibis, just not sure if it’s white faced similar to the glossy.

What a wingspan!

@pattyblue I agree. Kind of wonder what became of it.

@kvphoto I know, I was surprised when it took flight.

@amyk Thanks, I thought it was, also.

Definitely a water fowl.

Still think it is a straw-necked Ibis

Great capture of the wing span of this bird. I am beginning to see different birds in my state. I wonder what is going on with the bird population. I also wonder if a flock is sending a scout to check out new habitats.
