Glossy Ibis

The glossy ibis is a beautiful bird, but only in the right light. It is found spottily around the globe, with the southeastern U.S. as one area, large swathes of Africa, large portions of Australia and India, and patches in western Asia, eastern Europe, the Middle East and northern South America. I've seen them in Florida and my post has some at their prettiest. 

We saw some glossy ibis in the Okavanga Delta of Botswana and the birds all look quite brown and dull, none of the rust or neon light blue or iridescent greens I saw in Florida.
