Photo a Day 72 - White Ibis

My post for "Wild Bird Wednesday" shows a group of Australian White Ibis who have made their home in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens in the heart of our busy capital city.  They are superb gardens so the ibis have shown taste in their choice.

The Australian White Ibis are 65-75cm in height with a wing span of 1.25metres. They are usually found near water, particularly swampy areas, but are also at home on farms, in parks and on ovals in towns.

They have also been known to take a more than keen interest in the goldfish in my fishpond!!!
