Ibis


The ibis are coming. Look out Victorians. They have invaded Sydney and are now looking to conquer down south. Photo was taken near my work in Malvern.

  1. Perhaps the good people of Sydney would like some Indian Mynahs in exchange?

  3. FruitCake, I am not sure which are more of a nuisance. Ibis look nice at least.

    Feasible Windsmoke, except I did take the photo a couple of months ago.

  4. Yes Fruitcake those Mynahs are repulsive yet I have never seen one in Ballarat.
    My abiding image of Ibis is in Surfers Paradise sitting on all the wheelie bins trying to pull out the rubbish. Skyrats.
    Hope you are all cool now it's gone down to 26C X X

  5. Ann, that is what they do in Sydney now, right in the tourist areas.

  6. Possibly the Ibis are planning world domination, one city at a time.

  7. River, that is the first and only one I have seen in Victoria, never mind Melbourne. They are a pest in Sydney now.

    You have experience of them Fen?
