I agree with Someone Sandpiper.

I have to ask, Is that a birding phrase that I've never heard before?....or was that a typo that resulted in auto correct making that ID for you? :classic_laugh:

:classic_laugh: You mean autocorrect is not always correct??? I'll say this, at least voice to text is better on my phone than on my Garmin gps. Garmin turns everything into hieroglyphics. :classic_blink:

And thanks for pointing out my bugaboo. I hadn't even noticed. But Spotted Sandpiper it is regardless of what autocorrect thinks.

Thanks all; for the ID and the welcome! I apperciate it.

Re HamRHead's reply: "I agree with Someone Sandpiper."  I have to say my first interpretation was that he didn't often agree with anyone. :classic_wink: 

Glad the clarification cleared that up

Look at the curve in the bill.  That's clearly a Claw-Hammered Ibis.

Noobs; sheesh.

Wait. That might be me (Unless I'm a shark). Where was this taken?

Hard to say. About three hours (on a tour) outside of a tropic port (Hawaii, I believe) when the weather started getting rough. Ended up on some uncharted desert isle! 

Charlie - I proudly accept the noob classification (as I've so demonstrated in my posts!) 😉 (But it aint an Ibis)
