White Ibis in Belize

The White Ibis
Eudocimus albus
Ibises are an ancient group of birds: their fossil record goes back 39 million years. Their record in human
history goes back 5,000 years. The ancient Egyptians venerated the Sacred Ibis and made it an integral part
of their religion and of their written hieroglyphics. To them it was the god Thoth (the scribe to the gods),
so Thoth was pictured with the head of an ibis.

Its been raining for three weeks . 19 inches total.
The Ibis have been driven up by the high water to the fount of the island. nice to see them with out the mosquito factor.

the guy in fount is a juvenile. haven't seen one before.
they root around in the mud with the long bills and grunt like pigs.

Damnit I gotta go to Belize.

And you've only been to one planet?
