    Do you often see them (not necessarily the specific individuals!) together?

    Hi Jeremy, No, it’s unusual to see them together. Ibiss tend to flock together — on the ground as well as in the air. Occasionally, for some reason to which I’m not privy they’ll kick out one of their flock. From then on you’ll see the ejected bird wandering around by himself. I can’t be sure, but this Ibis guy looks like one of the ejectees. The egret, on the other hand, tends to be a loner by choice. In this case the egret was fishing by himself when the ibis ran up behind him. I was lucky enough to catch the two this close together.
