White-faced Ibis — near Newburg, Cumberland County; March 21, 2010. Photos by Frank Haas. This first-year bird, found by Vern Gauthier and confirmed by Ramsay Koury, stopped in a flooded field at the intersection of Duncan and Mud Level Roads. Unfortunately, it left late that afternoon. Especially note the distinctive red eye in addition to the bird’s obvious downcurved bill. This bird represents the 1st record for Pennsylvania!
