We spent most of the week in coastal Maine, looking for obscure and unusual birds and got quite lucky. I was able to photograph at least eight new birds that I'd never captured before, and I also managed to get much better photos of certain birds than I'd ever achieved before.
The glossy ibis is one such example. The last glossy ibis photos I got were last year and this was the best I could do. This week's walk on Scarborough marsh allowed me to get very close to an Ibis, as well as get quite a few views of other ibises (along with some beautiful egret photos.
As usual, the ibis photo links to a much larger version.
