Green Ibis (Mesembrinibis cayennensis), Linden, Guyana (Photo by Kester Clarke

The Green Ibis is resident in lowlands from Honduras south to northern Argentina, also the wetlands and swampy woods in Central and South America.

It is dark glossy green overall, but may appear blackish in poor light.

It feeds on aquatic invertebrates by walking slowly and probing its long bill into mud, dirt, and shallow water.
