The untold Beauties

While everyone is fascinated by the parrots´ colors, few people note the beauty of these very common birds, the buff-necked Ibis (Theristicus caudatus, curicaca). They are always present on any grassland here in the Pantanal and their diet consists mainly of insects, spiders, frogs, reptiles, snakes, snails and many more little creatures.
Right now there are 3 nests of ibises literally above our roofs on palm trees and together with the hyacinth macaws they are our alarm clock in the mornings.
