I got down to Pt. Mouillee yesterda evening around 6pm and found Skip
Zabel scoping the White-faced and Glossy Ibis. Upon arriving, I counted
(8) Gloss Ibis along the mud spit in the SW corner of the Vermet Unit,
approximately 150 yds out. Skip pointed out the White-faced Ibis out in
the middle of the Vermet Unit about 200-250 yds. out. I was able to
digiscope the Glossy's at about 60X power using my Zeiss 85T*Fl and new
Coolpix P5000 w/ homemade adaptor:
The White-faced Ibis images are a bit more heavily cropped, but show the
broader white border around the bill and red skin patch below the
and a nice comparison shot next to a Glossy Ibis (on the left):
The birds all took off at one point, and we were able to watch all 9 fly
as a group far off to the north, before returning a while later:
The Willet was also seen out on the sand spit w/ several Ruddy
Turnstones and Black Terns, but too far to digiscope, but I did manage
to catch it fly by later in the evening as the sun began to set:
I'll post more pics on my blog site as time permits.
