Glossy in flock of White-faced Ibis

I believe the ibis shown above to be a Glossy Ibis as it displays the following field marks: bluish-gray lines of skin (not feathers) framing the eyes but not extemd behind the eyes; dark versus reddish legs; and brownish not reddish eyes. (more photos by clicking on Read More)
The near ibis in the pic below shows the reddish skin on the face of a White-faced Ibis contrasting with the ibis in the back that has Glossy field marks.
The pic above shows the difference between the reddish legs on the White-faced Ibis on the left and the dark legs of the ibis on the right that shows Glossy field marks. SeEtta
