Few people know that birds play a vital role in the overall balance of the world's environment, they move around croplands helping egrets and others to rid the area of insect pests. Its adaptability to any of several food sources ensures its success as a species. Because of their role in helping to control crop pests, they are very valuable to farmers. However, agricultural pesticide usage has endangered the birds in several locations. The ibis gets its bright pink color from pigments in its food. Ibises are an ancient species with fossil records going back 60 million years.
