Royal Spoonbill (and Australian White Ibis)Australian White Ibis - Threskiornis spinicollis
I’ve wanted to get a spoonbill for ages, and here one is! I checked out peoples lists on ebird, for local places, and found them recently in about four places, and decided Capalaba Regional Park would be a good place to start. And, yaaaay! I was so excited. This is a juvenile bird, the adult has no dark tips to the wing feathers, and the bill isn’t smooth like it is on the juvenile.
