The Sacred Ibis was worshipped in ancient Egypt. A native of Africa, this successful wading bird still lives there but also thrives in Florida and Europe after escaping from captivity. But do its hosts welcome this pilgrim when it visits?
When I publicized this in my Xanga blog post, titled "A Suite for the Sacred Ibis", I realized that I could post an image on that site also. To do so, I had to "check" a check box to actually insert the image that I had uploaded.
