I earlier reported finding three White-faced Ibis at Colo Bogs on the eastern edge of Story County. Aaron Brees saw a picture of the Ibises posted by Hank Zaletel on eBird (?) and said one was a "no doubter" Glossy Ibis. I must apologize for making the assumption that they were all White-faced. I didn't even check! Shame on me! Never again. Thank you, Aaron!
The Ibises were feeding in a flooded sheep pasture on the north side of old Highway 30/Lincoln Highway/23oth St. with over 100 assorted yellowlegs, 35 Blue-winged Teal and a few Wilson's Phalaropes. Colo Bogs is about 2 miles East of Colo, IA.
