NEOAVES

Presumed hybrid Western Reef x Little Egret Egretta gularis x garzetta (1,2,3,4) On 5.3 there was a bird (see a photo below and a thumbnail here ) at Guadiloba reservoir, Cáceres, Extremadura (Javier Prieta, Jesús Calle, Carlos Fernández & Pepe Guisado). Photos from Javier Prieta. The bird might have been there since july 2003.Notice also some similarities with a bird from the Canary Islands seen last month
(2,3,4) There are 3 different presumed hybrids at L'Albufera de València area by mid March. One of them, not featured before in this website is depicted below (J.I.Díes)


The Extremadura bird (J.Prieta)

The Valencia bird (J.I.Dies)

BALD IBIS *Geronticus eremita (1).3rd for Spain. What was undoubtedly the the bird seen at Extremadura on January (F.J.Pizarro quotes it from 1-6 December 2004) was relocated midday on 24.3 at Trujillo, Cáceres on top of the ruined Iglesia de Santo Domingo, near the town castle (Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays, John Muddeman, Javier Briz). It was photographed and showed no signs of captive origin. The observers consider it to be a subadult (probably a 2nd calendar-year bird -a 1st summer-) .See a photo below (Javier Briz) and a thumbnail here (J.Muddeman). The bird was still there on 25.3 (Jesús Porras) and 27.3 (C.A.Usategui). Some discussion within observers and research done in Spain might show that: a) this bird is different from that recorded last December at Piedrahita, Ávila, b) the correct way in which both birds feed, particularly the Ávila individual may talk of a wild origin since some authors think that captivity-bred individuals do not feed 'correctly' in the wild. However, these statements have to be yet confirmed with captivity-breeders, c) there would be c.700 birds kept in captivity elsewhere, d) three of the birds released last year in Cádiz province had gone lost but they were ringed with three rings, one metallic, e) the Cádiz province project responsables think that although the situation in Spain may be controlled, after conversations with the CITES responsables from Portugal, the Lisbon Zoo Bald Ibis collection curators and some Spanish bird keepers, they feel these two birds may well come from a private bird keeper from Portugal since there is no need of having the birds neither registered nor ringed in that country. 
These two cases then probably heading for 'D' category once reviewed and accepted (ed.comment).
