Very cool. For sure I have never seen one of these here. :)
Beautiful! I love ibises!
That is one handsome bird. Great pictures! You have an impressive assortment of wild avians nearby.
Nice! Other than all those Ps in a row... :-)
He sure is a handsome fellow!! Beautiful photo. You always have birds I have never seen before!! Thanks for expanding my world!!
I have never seen one. Thank you. :)
He's a cute little youngster!! Loves the camera, too! ;)
another fabulous day at the pond
Your pond is an incredible bird magnet. How fortunate you are having the variety of birds visit. The Ibis is a wonderful example. Thanks for sharing T.
Morning, lucky you to have so many wonderful visiters to the pond....great pictures of a neat looking bird....Thanks for sharing......Blessings Francine.
You get such amazing variety!!! LOVE these shots!
I love all the different birds you introduce me to!
It's like you live in another country! (Well, I guess some Texans think they do. :) ) This is a new bird for me. Great photos, too.
I don't think I've ever seen one of those birds. Cool.
Nice pictures you show a beautiful ibis.Hanne Bente
Do you have a bird sanctuary nearby? Or are they just locals? You are very fortunate to see the varieties that you do.
Yes - as I looked at these photos I was dazzled by the bokeh! You do get the most interesting birds!
You were certainly fortunate to have such a wonderful and unusual guest!
He isn't very beautiful but he is very funny :)
we have these guys in our yards all the time, but the strange thing is, no juveniles are ever with them, the only time i see the Juveniles are in the preserves, and only a couple over the years.
Fantastic pictures. Yes,looking at the bokeh makes my eyes do strange things. The overall look is great.
i like the 2nd & last shot. seeing him walking around is too cool. neat bird. wait you called it a "white ibis" ... i learn so much from your bird watching abilities. cool!! thanks friend.hey, i have a Christmas giveaway going on at my blog ... please be sure to stop by. have a great week. ( :
Dearest Theresa,Perfect photos of this juvenile white ibis! Do you have any idea at what age/stage they finally turn white? Interesting for capturing this!Hugs,Mariette
I love coming here. Hug B
Quite the photogenic young bird!
And I bet his name is Cyrano....
My he does like to pose and that is some beak. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
Beautiful photos ibises.
Super cool bird. I'm so jealous that you get so many fun species at your pond. A bird lovers paradise!
Isn't he or she beautiful! Kind of a camera hog eh?
You are doubly blessed having a big pond and lots of feathered friends dropping in!
sweet little critter
These are wonderful pics, and the ibis is a first class poseur, yes?Cheers,Jo, Stella and Zkhat
Patient bird it was. Let you capture lots of pics!
Yeah the background is...well I thought it was I wasn't fully awake yet.
What an exotic-looking bird! These are great captures.
that's awesome! i think i've said this before, but you should get some sort of funding as a wildlife refuge.
What a great bird! You get some great visitors there.
Happy Pond Days!
He loved posing for you. I've never seen one of those. Love his long beak.
These are great! I like the next to the last pic.
He's a real poser!
Hi Teresa...Great poser it is...your pond area is like a runway for bird models : }Thanks for sharing !!Grace
We had black ibis in New Jersey but I think the white ones tend to stay in more tropical locations.The black ones were gorgeous.
She has been comfortable posing for you :))A kiss
You have a "plethora" of wild life around your ranch! Beautiful captures!
This is a fine series of this exotic bird. You have such an interesting variety...and the expertise to get excellent shots of them.
What a cool looking bird! I've never seen one other than in photos. The perch and background are fantastic! The first photo looks like a painting. Great shots!
You have the coolest avian visitors to your ranch. Awesome poses and beautiful bokeh. Great shots!!
Great looking bird and what a BEAK!!!
Beautiful bird, Theresa. You get alot of different and beautiful birds down there.. Thanks for sharing.Hugs,Betsy
You sure do get some great shots! They are cool birds, cool pics.'love & hugs from afar'
A great shot of the Ibis Tex.I was wondering! are not the Ibis and the egret related. Maybe you could clarify this for me.You really have some great birds there where you live.val
What nice and a real model.Hugs
he sure is a beauty!!i just love their long curved beaks...and the watercolor background is not dizzying i don't think...it's mesmerizing!!
These are GREAT! I looked at it and was like, "wow, it sure does have a big beak".... but then I was like, "good grief! Look at those feet!"LOL
that's the nice way to say, i took a $%!** load of pictures!!i saw one of these in a zoo, they are beautiful!! your captures are wonderful, he looks like he belongs in florida!!
What a beak that guy has!! I'm glad he was such a willing subject for your photography, I love all the shots! :)
He knows where the good life is and pickins are great too.
Very nice photos of this bird! Isn't there something mysterious/magical about the ibis?Greetings Pia
Nosey little fellow.
Great find!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Awesome shots. You wouldn't want this guy to take a "peck" at you. The old wood is attractive. Do you have shots of the beauties of old wood?
Oh I am so glad he got down from there - he was making me so nervous :) (that or the tea)
je hebt er heel mooi gebruik van weten te maken.
Wow!Ibis beautiful bird.In ancient Egypt, the sacred bird.I send greetings.
T, what a beautiful bird! You get such interesting visitors! Nice shots!
Great photos of the Ibis and rather different from the white Ibis out here.
Bardzo mi się podobają te ptaki z wygiętymi dziobami. Pozdrawiam.I really like the birds with curved beaks. Yours.
What great fun to see this gorgeous bird in your pond! Lovely
Wow. That is some amazing bird to get at home. In your back yard?
I love your pond with all the visits you have, lovely serie. Here ist raining and very dark. Colder to the weekend so I hope we can go out with the little ones, TYra is getting better, maybe shes going to have some rehab too
A fascinating looking bird. Nice shots.
Very cool! I wish I had a White Ibis drop by my pond. Also, I wish I had a pond.You have such lovely visitors :)
Wow, your pics are really nice, especially when you find something like a "White Ibis". Over here, we get a few of them, the Glossy Ibis, but they to often disappear.
What a lovely bird to see anywhere... but to come and visit your home Wow!.Have you ever totted up how many species you have seen at home? my garden is tiny but my total is a fairly good 34 including flybys.
Beautiful!Love your new header! I have missed visiting regularly!
He's one cool looking bird! His beak is almost as long as his legs! I've never seen one of those either.
I think he was liking having his picture taken!
Wow!Aloha to TEXAS from HonoluluComfort Spiral ~ > < } } ( ° >> < 3 3 3 ( ' > ><}}(°> ~
The variety of birds you get is simply amazing!! Cool spots on it's (his?) neck!
The White Ibis is a great visitor to your pond. Your got some great shots!
Oh I'm jealous! I have never seen one of these birds. The Bokeh is perfect! Send him on up here, would ya??
The perfect model.
A beautiful bird. I think my favorite shot is the last.
Pretty bird!Great photos!Dimi..
I had a bunch of Ibis visit our front yard this morning. :) I should post some photos...lol
Haven't seen one of those...interesting bird...kinda jealous of all of those birds that migrate around you. I'll just have to admire thru your pics!!
Truly an amazing new experience for me to see!
Cool beak! All fun pics:@)
Awesome beyond words.
What a totally cool little bird!!
Your pond seems to be standing you in good stead for all the birds it attracts. I have not manage to get to any of our dams for many months now but things are improving.I love how unbalanced that long, heavy bill makes ibises look. This is quite a cute youngster. Thanks to the splendid captures.
That is just amazing that you had a Ibis stop by for a visit. Lovely shots of him.
Such a cute guy. I like his loooong beak!
That beak. He is a nice looking guy, even his profile is quite nice.
That is a long beak!!!!!!!!!
Dearest Theresa,Wow, BEAUTIFUL shots of ibis (^_^)彡☆The crested (Japanese) ibis was registered as a special Japanese natural treasure.I smiled with the way you said "pose for a plethora" ; gorgeous shots♡♡♡Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
What a great model! I like the coloring of the immature Ibis.
Well, I learned something new....Texas has ibises! I identified them with warm coastal waters,for some reason. I know you're warm, but you aren't coastal, are you?
He's a handsome bird--It's always nice when they sit and let you admire them and take pictures, isn't it?
So jealous. Weren't these sacred birds in Egypt? Maybe I'm thinking of something else.
What a cool yard bird to have visit Theresa! We have White-faced Ibis here but I have never seen the White Ibis. Was the poor bird all by itself?
He's quite the beauty!
That is a lovely bird. Great pic.
WOW! Another amazing bird to find around your place. What a treat! I haven't seen that one at all. Great shots of such interesting looking birds. I am always reminded of Egypt when I see their side profiles.
These I like very much. A white ibis. I will just keep saying that you are so fortunate to live where so many birds drop by or stay or feed. Nice captures.
You are SO lucky to have that pond! Ibis - love saying that name. It's going to midnight here and my eyes are tired so yes, the bokeh is really dizzying for me right now. :) The colors are lovely.
I'm so jealous! Great captures!
This seems like an unusual bird for Texas? More "watery" creature--or are you close to some bodies of water? Glad it visited you so you could share with us--love its soft colors.
Nice looking bird - looks very similar to our species of ibis - which is not much of a surprise given that they are ibis!I would love to have enough space to have a pond - or a dam as it would be called here!Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne
Very different from our white ibis great series.
How lucky you are to be able to see an ibis so close and take pictures! I’ve never seen ibis in person. A few species are endangered species in Japan.Regarding the word “bokeh”, as you might know, it is originally Japanese word which means “blurred”, “can’t think clearly”, or “senile”. I’d like to handle “bokeh” in a nice way as I get older.Yoko
A beautiful visitor to have.
Pleasant photos! Glad it dropped by your pond.
Lucky you that have a nice guy like this around your yard ☆Indeed very nice picture.
How nice he posed for you! It's so neat to see a flock of adults and immature White Ibis with their mix of colors. Pretty pleasant plethora of pics! :) -Wally
Young creatures always have that innocence about their eyes. Marvelous bird.
What a fun visitor! Great pictures, too.
SO nice of him to pose so professionally for you!!!
What a great bird Theresa! I always think Ibis are such funny looking birds. Our White Ibis is quite an ugly bird. This one of yours is not so ugly at all. I wonder do your White Ibis change to the bald black heads like ours do?
Great statuesque pictures of this juvenile Ibis. Those weathered branches are ideal perches.
Very pretty photos, Theresa.
He is very handsome. :)
Oh, I nearly missed this one...what a beautiful bird, such wonderful colours and just a swell looking species! I am so thankful, that I just now saw this post~
Certainly unusual-looking bird. Don't you love those surprise visitors?
So happy for you to capture this gorgeous bird. I would be ecstatic!
