White-faced ibis’s have long legs and a long curved beak. They have white on their face and behind the eye, unless they are immature or non-breeding adults, then they lack the white on the face while their bodies and legs are dull black. White-faced ibis’s can be found around fresh water marshes, lakes, or irrigated land that has cattails, reeds or bushes. They are found in colonies in scattered areas in western North America.
