Glossy Ibis

I took this Glossy Ibis photo on 7 September 2014 just South of Amarillo.

It is not common here, and the panhandle is not in its migratory range. Its normal range does not extend West of the Louisiana delta region. They are normally found along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, and the Caribbean islands as indicated here.

They have a long downward-curved bill, and long legs typical of wading birds.
