I observed these White Ibises in the Joppa Preserve over the Fourth of July holiday. On exhibit in the following photographs are White Ibises of all different ages. Be sure and catch the captions for details.

Two juvenile White Ibises in the front-center of this photograph. The dark bird has just recently become independent. The whiter bird to his right has just passed through its first spring. Also in this picture: Roseate Spoonbill, Great Egrets, and Snowy Egrets.

I believe this is a newly independent ibis, born earlier this spring.
