White-faced Ibis at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge...

After a few hours of birding Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Queens this afternoon, I was working over a flock of 23 Glossy Ibises (Plegadis falcinellus) near the West Pond edges when I noticed other Glossy Ibises arriving from the marsh. I put up my bins to scan the incoming birds and spotted a White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi) in the group. Luckily, I had my camera out and so I fired off a couple of shots and got a few with the bird as it came in. Thankfully, it settled in and I also got some digiscope shots as well. Here are a few photos.
