Description: Among small group of dark adult- plumaged ibis, one exhibited narrow band of light blue bordering upper mandible and facial area. The light blue border appeared discontinuous where it extended behind the eyes. It continued again from below the eyes and extended towards the bottom of the lower mandible. The eyes were dark in a dark gray face and lore area. This individual flew in a circle over the marsh briefly, allowing observation of rearward extended legs which appeared gray in 40X scope at about 75 yards. Similar species eliminated. All adult White-faced Ibises and this individual exhibited same coppery- brown plumage on head, neck and breast and similar iridescent blue-green to violet and purple ving plumage. The White-faced Ibis adults exhibited broader, white, continuous border around entire bill and facial area, including the eyes. The White-faced adults differed also in the red facial area extending to the eyes which appeared redder than the dark-eyed adult's eyes'.
