Feathers on Friday: A Quartet Of Ibis

Through my kitchen window, I spotted this quartet of white Ibis balanced precariously in the trees alongside our lake. It was almost as though they were posing for a photo op.

According to Native American folklore, the white ibis is a symbol of both danger and optimism because it’s been noticed that they are the last to seek shelter before a hurricane and the first to emerge afterwards, so I’d better keep an eye on those Ibis.

Wishing you all a safe and peaceful weekend.

  1. They are so beautiful and special birds, Δ°bis… wonderful photograph dear Sylvia, I haven’t seen them on a tree… Standing amazing. Thank you, Love, nia

  2. An interesting bit of folklore about the Ibis. I don’t know too much about the Ibis, but whenever we have a bushfires, the first sign, is the lack of birds. They are so tuned into their environment…unlike us most of the time!

  3. You have a window that has magical qualities, Sylvia. I love folktales for there is a sense of truth that comes with the narrative. I would definitely keep my eyes on these beautiful winged creatures. Hugs!
