I was surprised to find this dark ibis on Lake Creek this morning. I believe it's a first-year White-faced but the reddish-brown eye makes me wonder if it could be a Glossy. This bird survived a dramatic leg injury. See how it's missing its right foot and lower leg, with raw bone protruding below the knee. I hope it can survive!

Description from Wikipedia

The family Threskiornithidae includes 34 species of large wading birds. The family has been traditionally classified into two subfamilies, the ibises and the spoonbills; however recent genetic studies are casting doubt on the arrangement, and revealing the spoonbills to be nested within the old world ibises, and the new world ibises as an early offshoot.

No range data available.
