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 is the right light.
Ibises are also know as ‘bin chickens’ because they are common sight in in the cities. This is caused by reduction of natural floodplains forcing birds to migrate into the people habitat.
