I did not know that this was a juvenile White Ibis until I sent a copy of the photo to a friend.
These birds are numerous in Florida, and common elsewhere in the southeast, but not at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma where I took this photo.
How I Got The Photo:
I photographed three juvenile White Ibis at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. They were near the Sally Jones Causeway.
I parked on the edge of the auto tour road and got out of my pickup. I was hand-holding my camera and lens and began photographing from the side of the road.
