It was a long weekend in Queensland (Labour Day) today and the traffic on
the Gold Coast was heavy.  An Australian White Ibis waited at the crossing
for a break in the traffic and then strolled casually across the road.  The
traffic came to a standstill and I was wondering at the further proof of how
these creatures adapted so well to living with humans.

Then I realised that the bird wasn't so clever after all.  The lights were
RED at the time.

A true story - really!!!
