There are now a group of ~40 White-faced Ibis at Dunbar Slough. 1 of them was suspect as Glossy, but I could not confirm due to distance and lighting. It clearly did not have a well-outlined face. It is either Glossy or most likely a younger White-faced.
Viewed from parking area on B Ave, just north or the S curve. Approx 1 mile north or 290th.
New birds are dropping in like hot cakes with the arrival of this strong north wind. Forster's Terns, 4 dowitcher spp, and more.

In western Greene County at Dunbar Slough there are currently approximately 60 American Avocets.
To view them a scope is needed. On 240th, just west of the slough habitat the road goes up a hill. Park on the north side of the road and scope south, southeast to the opposite end of the wetland in the distance. They were tucked against the southeast shoreline.
