And the White Ibis are nesting again in the Eucalypts at the top of the cutting on the East side of the Federal Hwy about one km north of the Yass River bridge. I didn’t have binoculars with me but could see two nests from the road.

Steve Holliday and I had a close look at the Australian White Ibis colony at Yowani this morning (in the fog) and counted approx. 85 nests. There are chicks of all ages in the nests, and many birds still sitting, presumably on eggs.


There are also at least 10 Little Pied Cormorant nests and 1 Little Black Cormorant nest, but no evidence yet of chicks in these.


Attached is a photo of a small section of the colony, showing some of the ibis chicks and some LPC nests.
