Australian White Ibis

White ibis Threskiornis molucca IMG 0733 - Ibis routinely patrol beach-front picnic areas at the Queensland coastal city of Hervey Bay and are always on the lookout for scraps of food. When there's a chance that outdoor diners at a nearby cafe might provide them with a snack the birds have no hesitation in dawdling across the road to take advantage of whatever is on offer, and the continual stream of traffic simply has to come to a standstill and give way to birds that would often prefer to walk rather than fly.
