This is a juvenile White Ibis. Still brown, but the white is slowly taking over.

A guess here is that this bird will not be breeding until spring next year (2021).

These photographs were taken at a wildlife management area where water had been lowered in old rice fields.

  1. The first time I saw a juvenile white ibis with brown all over it was in the Okefenokee swamp. The Ranger giving the boat tour saw that I was looking at it with a confused look, and pointed out it was a juvenile. They can be confusing when called “white” but look brown! Or called “blue”, like the Little Blue Heron juvenile, but are white!
