As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Rare bird alert: White ibis spotted

RYE, N.H. —Visitors and residents of the Rye area may have the opportunity to see an immature white ibis.

It was discovered at Awcomin Marsh in Rye on July 11, and was most recently reported on Tuesday.

It has also been reported from marshes along Route 1A just south of Rye Harbor.

This bird is mostly found in the Southeast United States in Florida and as far north as the Carolinas.

The sighting is part of the New Hampshire Audubon's Rare Bird Alert for Tuesday.

Other rare birds seen on the seacoast are a yellow-crowned night-heron, two black-crowned night herons, two glossy ibis and three whimbrels seen in Hampton all on Saturday.
