White Ibis flying over a Salt Marsh - Watercolor Painting
White Ibis can be seen along the eastern Gulf Coast of the US. A beautiful bird with a red mask and black wingtips, they flock together to feed in salt and fresh marshes. Normally they will fly in a string. In this painting, they have just taken off and are getting into their positions to form a line. I love the motion in this painting with the flapping of wings - you can almost hear it!
