I have given an answer to Denise, based on my observing the Ibis in Sydney,
but will not send to the list so quickly. I am curious what other attitudes
are out there, before giving my own influence. But ask me if you are
interested. The one thing I will add for now is the discussion not so long
ago about their nickname as "dump chooks / turkeys".

I’ve just received this email. Does anyone out there have any information,
an opinion?

Dear Denise, I wanted to ask your advice: here in Sydney they are carving up
the side of the road to create the biggest infrastructure in the country The
West Connex. It breaks my heart every time I see it because the beautiful
Ibis that used to nest in big gatherings have had their habitat entirely
destroyed not to mention now Ibis sitting on tree stumps where everything
has been chopped down in preparation for the next stage of development. Dead
Ibis scatter the freeway- it is appalling - do you know what I can do to
raise this issue?
