The Glossy Ibis, found this morning at Windermere Basin by Kevin
McLaughlin, was seen out in the open again at approximately 10:05 a.m. for
15-20 minutes at which time it flew towards the Pier 25 area, (back and to
the far right if you are at the main viewing platform) where it landed and
disappeared into vegetation. The bird is still present but it may take time
and patience to see.

Good birding,
Barb Charlton
