GREEN IBIS Mesembrinibis cayennensis

Found mainly in Northern South America, this somewhat abberant ibis is placed in its own genus. It is usually solitary and more of a forest dweller than other South American species although it is often very tame and seen in the open near water, as shown by the bird preening on the side of a walkway in the Pantanal.
