Immature Ibises and a Young Squirrel Vie for Dominance in the Back Yard

Two immature ibises landed in our back yard, not far from the bird feeder, and foraged for insects and grubs. Meanwhile a young squirrel looked on disapprovingly after scurrying back to the tree to avoid the approaching ibises. It made a couple of aggressive advances, but always retreated to avoid the long, curved beaks. Finally, the squirrel relented and scampered back up the tree, leaving the birds to graze at their leisure.
