Primary Identification

The first thing to look for when identifying a White Ibis is the curved pink bill. This unique feature immediately sets it apart from other all-white birds like the Cattle Egret and Great Egret.

While not as immediately apparent, the White Ibis does present with black tips on the (click the image to see a larger version where these tips are just barely visible) that are very clear during the birds flight.

Juvenile Form
