About This Image
This is an ibis. It is known as an ibis because of its bent nose which is customary for this species of bird. Ibis come in many varied colors. At one time, I thought they were only white but there are scarlet ibis and many other colors. This one was at Lafreniere Park directly outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. It was a nice park prior to Hurricane Katrina. Now(11/16/2005) they have stockpiles of wooded chips there from the hurricane. I am sure this will be cleaned and the birds, such as the ibis will be back to the park.
