An Albino White-faced Glossy Ibis

One “dirty-white” bird, feeding with five dark White-faced G10ssy Ibis (Plegadis guaruuna) in a marshy pasture near Farmington, Utah, was observed September 6, 1937, about 1:30 p.m. It was noted while I was going north on highway 91, between Salt Lake City and Ogden. These birds were disturbed just ahead of my car and flew west just in front of me and not over fifteen feet above the road - a good, clear observation. During the same week a similar bird was reported seen several times at Farmington Bay by a resident at Burnbam Gun Club.
