Following up on Daryl's post, yes, the Ibis at Lake Erie Metropark is a White-faced Ibis, not a Glossy. Walt Pawloski and I gave it a triple check and all marks are consistent with White-faced Ibis.
Unfortunately, at 7:01pm, the bird bolted and flew south. At 7:04pm, Scott Jennex arrived. We checked the south end of the park but could not relocate it. He also agrees with the White-faced Ibis call (he viewed my pics). I will try to get some images up on my blog (http://birdsbrewsandblither.blogspot.com/) in the next 24 hours or so.
Interestingly enough, LEMP hosted the Glossy/ White-faced Ibis duo on April 24th, 1996....
