Glossy Ibis Lost in NewJersey?
I am not big on bird IDs so I could be very wrong but after shooting some egrets in northern New Jersey and PP at home I notced a strange bird in the shadows, separate and out of the plane of focus of my subjects.
As near as I can tell. based on a web search, the bird in the shots below is a Glossy Ibis. I am NOT looking for C&C, the shots are very poor, even for me ;-). These are extreme crops, about the size of a single focus point in the original capture.
What I am looking for is positive ID. The Glossy Ibis is not supposed to be this far north, If it is, it is a very unusual (if not isolated) occurrence.
I started in the 50's - my first picture was taken with a Leica and hooked me for life. I no longer use my Leicas, but I am still taking pictures. Some things never change.
