Dump Birds

Ibis are not a thing of wondrous beauty.  In populated areas they can be quite a pest as they are expert scavengers and tend to breed in areas where there is a food supply, so there is a quiet campaign to remove their eggs from their nesting sites to slow down the rate of expansion of the colonies.

I wonder if they were prettier if it would matter as much.

It appears I was wrong, you're not on Google + and can comment. You have far more exotic birds than I get to photograph.

(ps, I will genuinely add a hello from the sunhsine coast as and when I comment on others, if that helps)

They look very, very different from any bird we see here.
