An inhabitant of shallow marshy areas, flooded fields and ponds, the White-faced Ibis uses its long legs to wade in the water. It forages in small groups by methodically pushing its long curved bill in and out of the mud and capturing crustaceans, snails, snakes, and insects. In flight, they often fly in long lines or \V\ formation. This ibis nests colonially, often with other species of herons and egrets. The nest is bulky, made of sticks and aquatic vegetation and placed low in shrubs or trees near the water.
The four-digit banding code is WFIB.
