White-faced Ibis

White-faced Ibis flying back to the lake in San Miguel at dusk

One of the many delights in San Miguel is to watch the birds fly over the city just after dawn and return back to the lake at sunset. Everyone in SMA seems to have a different opinion as to what they are. For all I know they could be Perdue oven stuffers, but according to SMA Audubon, they are White-faced Ibis. Last year we counted (using photographs) just over 600. This Spring there must be several thousands, streaming over in vast strings often arcing across the entire width of the City. Apparently, they are no good for soup.
