Ibis on the Farm

One of the interesting things about living on a farm is that farm operations can briefly change environmental conditions. Wildlife reacts immediately to these changes. When we cut our grass hay, the ground is suddenly available and various predators from eagles to owls to coyotes arrive to feast on the newly available mice. When we irrigate, some water briefly remains on the surface before it soaks in. This attracts white-faced ibis with their long curved beaks and ring-billed gulls as this video attests.
