Finally...Positive ID

A little over a year ago I took a picture of a bird at Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge and posted it to their Facebook page, hoping someone could identify it for me.  Well, I got my ID on the unknown bird and I get to mark another one off my list - and a fairly rare one for this area....

From not-so-good pictures, the great folks at Benton Lake let me know it is a White Faced Ibis.  I know that a couple of months ago I got an alert from Cornell Ornithology Lab's alert emails that one had been seen here in Helena.  Another bird on my bird list!
