Observation Date: October 16, 2013 Location: Boardwalk at Emiquon Wetland Access Weather: 50 degrees, sunny and pleasant
On Wednesday, October 16, I took a walk along the boardwalk at the Emiquon Wetland Observatory. I saw two birds out in the wetland that did not look like herons. I zoomed my lens out and found two Glossy or White-faced Ibises. They let me take a few pictures before relocating to a less visible area.
