And so to Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.  The green spaces of Victoria hold increasing numbers of ibis -  could be the State Bird perhaps, the Straw-necked for preference, being the most distinctly Australian. If you have reasonable resolution you might see the ibis below is expressing an opinion.  The defecation shot is unfashionable among today’s legions of bird photographers but is still pursued by some of the old school.  The other photo was taken on the deck of a house high on Arthur’s Seat, with a view to Melbourne on the right and The Rip to the left.  The owners, being occasional feeders of the garden’s many birds,  had found the answer to letting small birds have their opportunity at the bird seed. A portable large-bird-preventer is placed over the seed container, with small birds easily able to pass through the interstices.
