Top 7 Facts about Ibises

By: Anushka Jha

 Ibises are known for their long, curved bills and distinctive plumage, often adorned with shades of white, black, and iridescent hues.


These birds inhabit a variety of wetland habitats, including marshes, swamps, and estuaries, where they forage for food and nest.


 Ibises have a varied diet, feeding on aquatic insects, small fish, crustaceans, and even probing mud for invertebrates.


 Ibises are often found in large flocks, exhibiting social behavior such as communal roosting and cooperative feeding.


During breeding season, ibises engage in elaborate courtship displays and build nests in colonies, often atop trees or in dense vegetation.


Some ibis species undertake long-distance migrations, traveling between breeding and wintering grounds to find suitable habitats.


 Ibises play a vital ecological role by foraging for food in wetlands, helping to control insect populations and maintain ecosystem balance.
