Species: White Ibis | Location: Seminole County, Florida, United States

A white ibis preens its feathers after taking a bath. Worthy of note is this white ibis has a change in the coloring of its bill, legs, and feet to a deep orange-red and also develops a gular pouch of the same color during the breeding season.
