Earlier this afternoon, about 1:00 PM, I discovered a White-faced Ibis at the 
180th St. Marsh. My views were distant, and when I could get my scope on it, all 
I could see was the head sticking up from the grasses. However,  I could see the 
broad white border over the eye, and the white forehead. If someone gets a 
closer and better look and thinks differently, please post.
When I initially saw the bird, it was in flight between the north side ponds, 
barely above the rolling terrain, and almost immediately dropped below my 
view. I had to drive back up the hill to the west and look towards the ponds to 
relocate the bird. The water levels are high from the recent rains, and there is a 
flooded channel between the two north ponds, and the bird was down in that 
area, If you're down along the road, the rise in the terrain prevents the bird

As a reminder, please note this is PRIVATE PROPERTY. The farmer does not 
appreciate people walking into his fields. Please stay on the road so that this 
area remains a welcome location to birders.
Also seen were 8 Black Terns and at least 30 Yellow-headed Blackbirds, along 
with numerous other expected species.
