We have ibis (white and glossy, mostly) everywhere in our urban/suburban area here in Palm Beach County. They are on the streets, the traffic islands, the wetlands, even in my back yard in huge flocks after a big rain. They tend to be street smart or don't survive. That one will be fine once he can fly, probably.

Picked up a new Canon 100-400 and gave it a good test yesterday.

The Grey Goshawk is still hanging around

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

She sent me a phone snap of her with 9.5 kilo of eagle. I know it's in captivity but it looks pretty wild to me! :-)

Great shot. That's a lot of eagle. I've worked with Bald and Golden eagles but that looks maybe even bigger!

Wild, but urbanised and traffic smart. Appears this young Sacred Ibis fell from it's nest or took a premature flight attempt and now living in the garden within a traffic Island on very busy King Georges road in Beverly Hills Sydney.

Unfortunately the chick did not make it. Found it's body in the garden strip this morning, appears to have died in the last day or so.
There are about 8 chicks in the 2 trees doing fine, being fed by busy parents.
