Glossy Ibis Along Shoreline

We saw this lone Glossy Ibis at the start of the Wildlife Drive at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. It was rare to see a lone one. Usually you see 3 or more in a group working an area for food. It turned around and started to go out into the water in the channel, then returned and disappeared in the grasses. I wish it had been a sunnier day to bring out more of the colors in the Ibis.  The lighting was very dull, so I brightened it up a little and added a little saturation.

The Ibis started walking out into the water then turned around and went into the grasses along the shore

I found this Glossy Ibis along the shoreline at the start of the Wildlife Drive. It was working the shoreline looking for a meal, plus scratching in between. I got a few images before it wandered off into the grasses. The lighting was very dull, so I brightened it up a little and added a little saturation.
