Scarlet Ibis range

The Scarlet Ibis is a native wading bird of South America. This great looking ibis can be seen on the island of Trinidad, feeding along the coast, in the daytime. In the evening, they form large flocks, gathering on the interior lakes for the night. The Scarlet Ibis has not been seen in North America as a wild bird, but it is regularly seen in zoos and bird centres. It has been seen as a vagrant in Cuba.
