Driving home from work today I came across what must be two glossy ibis. I was rather surprised to see those amazing curved bills. They were in a flooded fallow corn field (yes, we've had a lot of rain too).

Some cooper's hawks recently fledged from a nest in St. Louis City. I went there to see if I could find any of the hawks (parents or the descendents) and found two (only one is photo'd)

Thanks for the ID!
