Juveniles are hard too

If getting into birding weren’t hard enough with the diversity in Costa Rica, in just about every species, the juvenile (and usually female) is very different and potentially not differentiatable from other species.  For example, these are pictures of a juvenile White Ibis.  It’s hardly even white!  Luckily, this is a relatively easy ID, given that there are only a couple of ibis in Costa Rica.white-ibis-juvenile-eudocimus-albus-05102009-092404white-ibis-juvenile-eudocimus-albus-05102009-091937
