I saw the Ibises this morning around 11:00 and can confirm that there were 2 White-faced and 1 Glossy. The Glossy had a dark iris not a red iris. This was initially pointed out to me by another birder. Thanks to Ann for alerting me to the difference. Also present were Short-billed Dowitchers. Nick Osness Ames
