When we awoke this morning, a small number of Australian White Ibis were wading in, and walking around the dam. We didn’t actually count them, but there were about six or seven all in different locations.
It is hard to tell if these were a family of ibis, or a flock of individuals. Males and females have the same markings, and the only distinguishing feature for immature Australian White Ibis is that they have black feathers on their head instead of a bare black head. Unfortunately I didn’t get close enough to them to tell.
We are not sure if the ibis roosted here last night, or if they made a brief stopover for breakfast. Either way, within half an hour of us spotting them, they were gone.
