This morning I had the good fortune to find a White-faced Ibis in Myre-Big 
Island State Park.  The Ibis initially flew over me at the first curve in 
the paved road about 1/4 mile south of the park office.  By walking down the 
paved road to the east about 100 yards, and then taking the trail to the 
right that curves around the hill, I was able to find where it had settled 
into a small pond.  I was able to get a good look with my scope and 
positively identify it as a White-faced Ibis.

Unfortunately, about the time I identified it, some ducks in the pond 
spooked and the Ibis went with them.  Hopefully, it's still in the area
