Green Ibis

Green Ibises have shorter legs than do other ibis. The bird is placed in its own genus, Mesembrinibis. The species ranges from southern Central America through much of the Amazon Basin. It feeds on invertebrates in shallow water and in mud (Molfetto 2011). This Green Ibis foraged along the Rio Frio in northern Costa Rica on 12 July 2017.
