individual #1,

Observation details

Two individuals, seen in separate fragments of breeding colony, One of them seems only minutely involved in breeding issues,and mostly likely to stay in the middle part of vegetation and shows no sign of nest (if any) territoriality. The second individual, contrary to the first one strongly involved in the defense of the nest, showing aggression to the all approaching ibises, as well as the Coots and Galinules when happened to be too close. The nest on ground level among Typha, Tule and perhaps also Spartina, in nest at least two bluish eggs, the individual spent most of the time incubating, rarely getting out of the nest, and when he did, he was no further away from the nest as one meter for very short breaks , I'm pretty sure that this individual is likely a female, however who the father is? it is less clear, none of ibises approaching the nest was tolerated friendly, and I do not completely exclude the possibility that "father"may be indeed GLIB # 1.
