Like most wading birds an Ibis will eat just about anything. They prefer worms and crustaceans found with their curved pointed bill.

At the shore and salt marshes Ibis are a favorite target of Gulls. When an Ibis catches a fish they must work hard to position and swallow the prey. Gulls have time to swoop and steal a fish.
