Re: Glossy Ibis

We were unsuccessful looking for the  Glossy Ibis inside Safari Park today. The scattered nesting situation makes it tough. And the majority of the birds were staging in an area too distant to view with confidence of ID. The ibis at the east end of the dairy on Old Milky Way (near the soils company that has piles of composted muck) was in scope view for about 20 minutes from 7:15ish to 7:40ish, when it flew off to Safari Park. It and several other ibis were foraging among the cows on the slope near the road.


There are major concerns looking for this bird at the dairy because of a narrow shoulder on the road, combined with heavy, fast traffic. VERY limited parking in the area. PLEASE take care!
