Glossy Ibis range

The Glossy Ibis is more likely to be seen in the southeastern regions of North America. This ibis is very similar to the White-eyed Ibis, which is seen in the western regions of the US states. Close observation is needed when seeing these two wading birds, because sometimes a small amount of white can be seen around the eyes of the Glossy Ibis. These waders are seen in Cuba.
