Ibis sighting on Buffalo Bayou (updated)

Ibis on Buffalo Bayou - They are abundant in 2014
and present in many locations, including flooded fields after rain.

Highway 6 Buffalo Bayou Bridge - Point of confluence of Buffalo Bayou
 (spillway downstream from the flood gate) and drainage channels outside the dam
(which bring in water from North and South) is a good birding spot.
Great whit egrets, night herons, and blue herons are more commonly seen there. Ibises are exceptional.
