The main source of food, as far as I know, is uncovered municipal tips.
If these were made inaccessible to Ibis, even a few people feeding them
would not be enough to support the large population that in Sydney
relies on the Tempe Tip, or did when I lived there.


Penny -  I think that falls within stupid people feeding the birds myself.

Ravens, silvergulls and a range of other birds and animals all feed at
uncovered tips.

We are supposed to be a smart species and yet we can't manage our own waste.
