The aptly named ‘Glossy Ibis”


Birding early this morning along the edge of the Klein River Lagoon near Hermanus, I was delighted to come across a flock of Glossy Ibis.  One can immediately see why they are so named, when their plumage reflects the morning sun.  They were not too concerned about my presence and continued foraging, along with some Hadeda Ibis, Egyptian Geese, Sacred Ibis, Blacksmith Lapwings and many Red-knobbed Coot.  The lagoon itself was inundated with hundreds of Coot and ducks and was a sight to behold!
