Brooklyn White Ibis

Yesterday's directionally challenged White Ibis spotted over Prospect Park by Klemens Gasser was relocated this morning by wildlife photographer Ryan Morrissey in Green-Wood Cemetery. This Brooklyn first stuck around long enough for some great photos at the edge of the Valley Water, but not long enough for the legions of birders who headed into the cemetery for this NY rarity. Ryan just sent me this note and some wonderful photos:

Hey Rob,

Good to see you again today, hopefully someone was able to relocate the Ibis. Here are a few pics from when it was being more sociable. I can see now that it was eating earthworms and grubs.

Take care,
Ryan
