Ibis On The Prairie ...

Ibis,Herons and Egrets are returning
to Paynes Prairie Preserve.
My first year on the birding trail .
Slowly becoming familiar with the
vast number of migratory birds that
call the prairie home during the winter.

The Glossy Ibis

The American White Ibis

The Ibis is known for being the last sign of
wildlife to take shelter before a hurricane and
the first to reappear after the storm.
