I was at Bald Knob NWR today, hoping to find something interesting. I did. I got to watch an aerial battle as a group of about 30 American Crows were harassing a female Northern Harrier. It lasted for quite a while as the harrier refused to give up the fight. Finally they drifted off where I could not see them any more. Meanwhile, a dark bird slipped in and landed in the water. Yesterday I saw a juvenile White Ibis in the same spot, and at first assumed it was the same bird. I was wrong. The ibis was very dark. It had black feet, dark brown eyes, and a thin white line around the eyes. I am leaning toward a Glossy Ibis, but it could possibly be a White-faced Ibis. I know when they are young it is very difficult to tell them apart. I have sent some photos out for a second opinion, but I wanted to give a heads up to anyone who may be interested in either type of ibis.
