Glossy Ibis, Yolo County

Yesterday (the 28th), Todd Easterla found a GLOSSY IBIS at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area in Yolo County.

A nice bird for California, I figured I'd stop by this afternoon on my return drive from Bodega Bay.

Things didn't look promising when I arrived, there were only 12 ibis in the flooded shorebird field (whereas there can be hundreds).  HOWEVER, the Glossy was one of them!  What are the odds?  Here's a picture:

You can also find this picture on my Flickr site.

Here's a quick map of where I saw the ibis this afternoon.  Note that you can pull off directly next to the shorebird field.  I labeled Parking Lot C just for reference:
