White Ibis Roosting

A small flock of White Ibis have been hanging out in this tree in late afternoons.

In other years Great Blue Herons have nested here.

Right now the GBH are only in the further trees and the Ibis have the run of this one

Squabbles among the Ibis are pretty common.

Sometimes they just want a bit of alone time.

  1. Beautiful, Ellen. A great sighting seeing them roost and the light is lovely. I remember being so surprised seeing birds like this dotting the trees when I first moved to SC.

    1. Thanks, Belinda! We’ve seen six or eight nests in that little tree somewhat overlapping in time. The last few years there has been one Great Blue Heron nest, 4 or 5 Great Egret nests, and a couple Anhinga nests closer to the bottom! The Ibis all leave before their nesting season, and I don’t know where they go—maybe they need more privacy.
