    Those birds are stupid tasty.....

    That's what I've heard....
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    I've seen White Ibis all over since moving, obviously they are everywhere.  But I discovered the glossys when we moved.  Their flight is different than whites.  Whites are deliberate and pick a spot and land.  Glossys will circle, glide and look like they are going to land, only to keep gliding around and eventually land somewhere.  I think it's an interesting behavioral differentiation considering they seem so similar.
