the balancing ibis

Australian White Ibis are quite prolific across Australia, only avoiding the most extreme of the desert centre. They are 68-75cm with black naked heads and necks and black plumes on the tail. I spotted this pair in the top of a pine tree near the beach, a good 20 + metres up in the air. They were nonchalantly balanced on the swaying tips grooming themselves in the afternoon sun.
