Re: An Ibis takes Flight

I prefer No2 Mark with the head and feet showing - but that is a particularly filthy looking Ibis!
Could you not have given him a bath before turning him loose?

Is that dirt or is it a juvenile?

The plumage looks OK apart from the colour?

Re: An Ibis takes Flight

I have no explanation for the colour. That's just how it was.

These birds are great foragers. They frequent rubbish dumps and are becoming pests in suburban areas. The plumage is often this colour due to their foraging activiities, quite often in muddy water. It is known as "stained plumage".
This is a particularly fine example.

Thanks Lyn. You are a living breathing Ornipedia ... your knowledge of flora and fauna is awesome.
