The Cayuga Basin’s 4th record of White-faced Ibis showed up at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge about a week ago. The exact date it showed up is unknown as it was discovered soon after the refuge opened following the government shutdown.

Conveniently, the White-faced Ibis was in the company of a Glossy Ibis, allowing close comparison of these two similar species.
