Location: In the park down the road from our St Peters home

Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca) (1) A white ibis turned up in the 
park, among families and running children, and nonchalantly strolled around, 
hunting under the picnic table for something to eat. We have been to or ridden 
bikes past this park many many times over the years, and this is the first 
white ibis we have seen there.
