Workgroup on THRESKIORNITHIDAE
The ibis is a bird belonging to the family of Threskiornithidae. Besides ibises, spoonbills are also included. Ibis can be seen in many places: an ibis in a pond, a wading ibis, an ibis on the shoreline or an group ibises roosting in the tree tops.
The ibis that attracts our attention are the ones that live in protected environments. Ibises keep their natural instincts and behaviors in the captive setting, but remain calm through the relaxing atmosphere and the safety of the aviary they are housed in.
In a calmer, more natural state, we can study them more easily. Many interesting facts have been discovered this way. Photos, habits and behavior studies have been done this way and are simple if the bird is close by and unafraid of its keeper.
