Banded White Ibis

Species: White Ibis - Juvenile
Date Found: 12Nov2007
Location: Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge on the Suwannee Canal
Nearest Town: Folkston, GA
Bands: Blue and Red on Left Leg & Silver and Yellow on Right

This is the dead Ibis we found while paddling the Swamp. It was right in the middle of the canal with no apparent damage to its body. Frankly, we were all surprised that it wasn't alligator food but I called in the bands and await the news of where and when this young one was banded.
