The White-faced Ibis I found yesterday on the South End of the East Pond at Jamaica Bay was difficult to photograph because of the distance. It was important for documentation purposes to get a photo showing the red iris and facial skin. While I have more photos to look at, this one shows the red iris and red facial skin, which is diagnostic in all plumages but juveniles. I will post more as I get to them.
I was able to capture some video footage of the White-faced Ibis, which I have posted below. It is a good opportunity to review what to look for when trying to find this species this late in the season. I hope it helps!
