Australian White Ibis, Juvenile Begging by 

Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca).
Juvenile begging its parent for food. Oakden Native Fish Sanctuary, South Australia. This colony of Ibis is in the heart of the Adelaide suburbs. The colony has grown to over 400 in a very short time and many of the local residents are fed up with the noise and stench as their houses are so close to the small park where the colony resides. The birds are protected. At the end of the breeding season it is anticipated that the vegetation where they are nesting will be cut down to encourage them to move on. For those of us who don’t live right next door to them it seems a real shame, as the birds feed on many of the parks and school ovals in the vicinity and are delighted in by the wider community. It points out the difficulties that urban wildlife can cause when fauna is in such close proximity to people.

    A beautiful picture of parent & begging young. BUT I have experienced first hand a flock of Ibis nesting at our property. Th mess, stench & destruction they do is amazing. I love our natural environment but these are the only guys I do not welcome! Anita

  • Hi Anita
    Thanks for your comment.
    I guess I wouldn’t be so keen if they were in my small backyard, but I guess that’s not likely to happen.
