Glossy Ibis at Jemseg, NB


Seen today at Jemseg, NB; two Glossy Ibis. This was my first sighting of this species in New Brunswick. Although not seen often, the New Brunswick Bird Records Committee lists the Glossy Ibis as a migrant (m*), a rare but annual visitor to our province.

He doesn't look like he's from around here. Is he a stranger to these parts? Slightly exotic looking I think. How'd he blow into town?

I thought you would enjoy this one, Wannabe. A stranger? Well, last time I saw him he was in the Florida Everglades; however, not seen here often the New Brunswick Bird Records Committee lists the Glossy Ibis as a migrant, rare but annual.
