Transcript The head was dark with whitish streaks. The facial skin was dark gray with a clean cut pale border that went across the bill and down both sides of the face and stopped at the eye. Border was skin. The eye was brown and was not red. Nearby White-faced Ibis had a red eye and pinkish facial skin. A second bird was observed in similar plumage, but the pale border was tight blue. Field separation of Plegadis ibis in fall and winter can be difficult and they are often inseparable. Both species get gray facial skin in the winter. If references can be trusted, feel the ID is correct First, both birds are apparently adults. Both birds clearly had brown irises. All adult White-faced Ibis observed had at least some red or pink facial skin and had red eyes. Documentation also submitted for Glossy Ibis in Colorado County on September 5,1994. Masked Duck - G.

Burkett September 16,1994 These three black Common Grackle sized birds, with large parrot like bills were observed in a dead tree on the side of the road from 20 ft. for several minutes.
