Scarlet ibis is a type of ibis that lives in the Threskiornithidae bird family. Both men and women have mostly red feathers. All the feathers in the world may show different shades. The only thing that doesn’t match this color is on the wingtips. They are really dark inky black. If the bill is black, it isn’t always red. People who fly have long necks and legs that are stretched out.

All the males and females of the bird are the same color. The males are bigger and have a longer beak than the females.

Crowds of Scarlet Ibis gather in wetlands and other wet places, such as shorelines and rainforests, to drink and rest. Scarab beetles are the main thing they eat there, but they also eat other insects. It doesn’t mean they don’t eat crustaceans like shrimps, but they do.

They have black bills and make nests out of loose platforms of sticks, mostly in trees above the water. If it is possible, they are built on islands that aren’t in danger of being eaten. Normally 3 to 5 eggs is laid by the female. She incubates them for 19 to 23 days. As they raise their young, the couples stay together and share parental responsibilities.
