I'm hoping more experienced birders can let me know if this is truly a white-faced ibis instead of its close relative, the Glossy ibis. With the snow, it is difficult to see its eye, although I was able to pop the color on the photo to have a better look at the plumage.
Grant spotted the bird in our yard when he returned after forgetting his keys, and was pretty excited since he's only seen one other in his life. Our best guess is it was set down from the weekend storm. We were able to take a few shots before the neighbors walked by with their dogs, and unknowingly spooked it. He flew to the east where there are large rock piles and landed there. Any ideas where this fellow is going?
