|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The White Ibis is a distinctive wading bird commonly found in the coastal marshes and wetlands of tropical North and Central America. It is easily identified by its white plumage and long curved red bill. |
Habitat loss is currently the White Ibis's greatest threat. The preservation of the species' coastal marsh and wetland habitat is crucial. Nestlings require freshwater prey, so protecting freshwater habitats adjacent to nesting sites is also extremely important. The White Ibis's habit of frequently changing its colonial breeding sites is a particular conservation challenge. Protection of small pockets of habitat where colonies currently exist is only temporarily helpful.
