The E. ruber or Scarlet ibis (Eudocimus ruber) is a species of ibis in the bird family Threskiornithidae.

It inhabits tropical South America and part of the Caribbean. In form, it resembles most of the other twenty-seven extant species of Ibis, but its remarkably brilliant scarlet coloration makes it unmistakable.

It is one of the two national birds of Trinidad and Tobago, and its Tupi–Guarani name, guará, is part of the name of several municipalities along the coast of Brazil.

This medium-sized wader is a hardy, numerous, and prolific bird, and it has protected status around the world.

E. ruber or Scarlet ibis IUCN status is Least Concern. The legitimacy of Eudocimus ruber as a biological classification, however, is in dispute. Traditional Linnaean taxonomy classifies it as a unique species.

Some scientists have moved to reclassify it as a subspecies of a more general American ibis species, along with its close relative, the American White Ibis.

Adult E. ruber or Scarlet ibis plumage is virtually all scarlet. The feathers may show various tints and shades, but only the tips of their wings deviate from their namesake color.

A small but reliable marking, these wingtips are a rich inky black (or occasionally dark blue) and are found only on the longest primaries. Sometimes the birds’ coloration is a vivid orange-red, almost of luminous in quality.

Adult E. ruber or Scarlet ibises have red bills and feet however the bill is sometimes blackish, especially toward the end. They have a long, narrow, decurved bill. Their legs and neck are long and extended in flight.
