These Australian White Ibis grow up to 75cm and frequent about 75% of Australia .. avoiding the central desert of WA south of the Kimberley. They nest in large colonies amoung mangroves and lignum over water where they build large cup nests and lay up to 4 white eggs. I captured this pair in the Coffs Harbour Botanical Garden.
