Glossy Ibis likes wetlands and floodplains. There are 3 types of Ibises in Australia (Glossy, Straw-necked and White), but the Glossy Ibis is my favourite. Maybe because of its colours? From the distance, this bird looks black, but if you look closer green-and-purple gloss is clearly visible in the right light.
Ibises are also known as ‘bin chickens’ because they are a common sight in the cities. This is caused by the reduction of natural floodplains forcing birds to migrate into the people habitat.
Where spotted: St. Lawrence QLD
