Scarlet ibises are found in marshes and mangrove swamps in northern South America, to eastern Brazil. They are very sociable birds, and fly in large flocks to hunt for food. They use their curved beak to search for crustaceans, mollusks, fish, insects, frogs, and small snakes. Scarlet ibis is the national bird of Trinidad & Tobago.
The above picture was taken at Cincinnati zoo, in May, 2001.
