Ibis
1

I returned to the water at Redbank Plains, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia.

There are Ibis all around the pond.

The ones with pink of the back of their head are males.

Every direction  I looked, there were Ibis.

Spring is next month so they are getting ready.

The stray necked Ibis was walking around up in the mowed area.

This Australasian  Grebe is in it's mating colors.

Grebe family photo.  The last chicks are starting to look like the parents.

Landing

I need a lot more practice.

The purple swamp hens are the alarm system for the area.

Re: Ibis

I like bin birds.

Did you get caught up in the 'Lock down'?

Re: Ibis

We are in the lock down but at my age, I don't travel much.  It does make shopping harder.

Re: Ibis

Nice shots macrouser!

I like your first shot best.

We also get the Glossy Ibis here on the Atherton Tablelands. I used to live in Strathpine.

Thanks for sharing and reminding of the great variety of birds near Brisbane and Sunshine Coast.

Cheers
