There are three common species of ibises in North America; the Glossy Ibis, White-faced Ibis and the White Ibis. The Scarlet Ibis is not often seen and is a southern bird found in South America and in some of the Caribbean islands.
The ibises are some of the most numerous wading birds seen in the southern and central states. Although their numbers are declining from loss of habitat like so many other types of birds, they can be seen on the mud flats, next to the oceans and in the interior of the country, feeding in marshes and along roads and highways.
