Plumbeous Ibis (Theristicus caerulescens)

2 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The Plumbeous Ibis occurs commonly around ponds and marshes in the Pantanal. This large ibis has an orange iris and a long crest and feeds whilst wading in shallow water. The name is derived from the Latin term for lead, plumbum in deference to the bird's colouring.
