    Straw-neck Ibis

    I would like to introduce you to one of the ugliest birds we have got here in Australia.
    ThoughI have not seen this arm of the Ibis birds until yesterday.
    I took a few shots but they were not too good as the dopey one holding the camera didn't check the settings.
    So what I got was okay for my but not to post here.
    So today I went back to the park and they were there once again.
    And I got a couple of good shots of it or them.

    I also got to capture a Nankeen Kestrel which again is a new one for me.
    Please excuse the ones in flight as it was all hand held and manual focus.
    Like most of these they tend to move really quickly.
    But the one shot I am posting of it sitting there is my favourite shot of it.
    I hope you like my shot of these 2 birds.

    This is my favourite shot of the day and I am happy it was on this bird.
