It was a very sunny day until about 10 minutes after I pulled into the refuge. Figures. I was able to catch the various ibis in good light. The egrets, not so much. They were fishing around a drainage pipe, which made the birds difficult to frame without including the more obvious man-made elements including a rusted guardrail.

The egret photos are largely uncropped. I was patient with the foraging ibises and they got close enough to Wilderness Drive that I didn't have to crop too much.

Well done, JP. I didn't know you had the glossy ibises up there.

Thanks for all of the kind words, guys. There are a lot of ibises around Cape May and Atlantic Counties in the summer. I see them flying in flocks over the marsh in Avalon in the early morning or late evening.
