Australian White Ibis

The Australian White Ibis has an almost entirely white body plumage and a featherless black head and neck.
During the breeding season the small patch of skin on the under-surface of the wing changes from dull pink to dark scarlet.
They invade urban areas for food scraps and are so prevalent here that they are almost considered as pests. These I shot by the creek.

FULL THROTTLE!

I'm so addicted to this lens, 40-150mm F2.8 Pro w/tc that I can't get it off the camera.

Re: Australian White Ibis

Nice. And, for a zoom, the Bokeh ain’t half bad either. #2 is my favourite, but #1 works nicely with the small subject standing out (both in focus but also a very different form and colour to everything else in the “seen”).

A true blue Aussie mate of mine calls them “tip turkeys”.

Nice photos! ��

Yes Jason, in the bush Ibis stand out like the proverbial. Along with the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo they are the most easily spotted birds.

My neighbour also calls them that, among other vulgar adjectives.

Well yes, as vilified as they are, they do no harm as far as I can see. Most people call them ugly. They are in plague proportions here, there may be as many as a dozen foraging on my front lawn. They're so common that I don't bother to shoot (photograph) them , it would be like shooting grass.

Re: Australian White Ibis

It's very odd to hear that such a beautiful bird is regarded as a bit of a pest! Nicely shot Mark.

Too true, Phill. It's a bit like weeds and wildflowers; the only difference is prevalence. As said, I won't waste Gigs on them cluttering my lawn, but in their natural habitat, I see and show them as they should be seen.
