Haha! I think mostly everyone, birder or not, considers them trash birds. Everyone in my family hates them.

I like them though. They’re smart and inquisitive. Always fun to watch. They’re also very good at helping me find owls n things!

They are smart and opportunistic. I have often seen them with Red-tailed Hawks and even Bald Eagles patiently waiting for left overs.

I wasn't out "birding" today, but saw this White Ibis in a local parking lot.  Not a great iPhone picture, but I feel like contributing something to the community today, and it does qualify as my best photo of the day. The bird had just finished eating some lawn grass.  I hope the area wasn't too heavily fertilized.  

The White Ibises are the most prolific species in the areas I frequent.  A major upgrade to the ugly Rock Pigeons that are all over NYC where I last lived. 🙂

These are actually from a couple of days ago. I got side tracked and didn't get them posted. Common Ground Dove-we get them in our backyard but they are always on the feeder, the roof of our shed, on the ground or concealed by foliage. So it was nice of one to finally pose openly and in an attractive setting. Love these tiny doves.

Very nice! Those were unfortunately heard onlys on my trip to Florida last spring. A super pretty dove.

Nice shot! I haven't seen any yet this Fall so far, but I always have some that spend the Winter in my yard. I'm looking forward to seeing them this year.

I had my first migrant WCSPs two weeks ago coastaly, though it just now seems like they are coming back in good numbers.

Maybe not the greatest photo but I got to see them feeding. Usually when I see them they are just standing around doing nothing. So being able to witness and photograph them actively sweeping the water for food was a treat.
