City Life - the Australian White Ibis


The breeding season for the Australian White Ibis, Threskiornis molucca, has started here in Brisbane. Couples are building nests with twigs and small branches, usually not far from water and high on trees like Mangroves, Palms and also thick Bamboo. Some may probably already have eggs or young hatchlings.

  4. What a marvelous head! Your ibis reminds me a little of a turkey whose bill grew too long.
