White-faced IbisPlegadis chihi
22-25" (56-64 cm). W. 3'1" (94 cm). A large, chestnut-bronze marsh bird with a long, down-curved bill. Very similar to the Glossy Ibis of the East, but with band of white feathers around bare face, and red eyes and legs. Glossy Ibis has narrow band of white skin around edge of bare face, brown eyes, and gray legs. In winter, White-faced Ibis has streaks on head and neck, and brown eyes; it is then virtually impossible to distinguish the two species.
