american white ibis

i told ya i'd figure it out! anyway . . . the dogs were barking as usual, however, they continued for longer than usual - which is the amount of time it takes for the mail person to pass or a neighbor to walk past the house . . . they kept on & on so i went to see what was up & the video above speaks for itself. the american white ibis visits yards/parks in tropical climates & eat the bugs in your grass. the ibis were out in the front yard for about 1/2 hour. they always hang in flocks which is cool . . . one time they landed along my fence in the back yard which is about dozen or so fence lenghts - so about 70+ feet . . . anyway, they landed on it & they looked fake as they were all lined up, lol! ibis also like to land on the top of the pine trees out back which makes they stand out as they're so white . . . they remind me of a christmas tree topper when they do that! when they land in a tree they look like ornaments! i really enjoy all the critters round here & i'm glad i had another new one that i was able to capture on video for you'all. enjoy!
