To put another spanner in the works, the situation on the Gold Coast seems
to be:

Royal Spoonbills are common.  Yellow-billed are not as common although I
would hesitate to say uncommon.

Royals are never (or very rarely) seen alone while Yellow-billed often occur

A single (or pair of) Yellow-billed are sometimes seen with flocks of Royal
but a single Royal is never seen with a flock of Yellow-billed.
