Ibises are magnificent birds. They fly with power and grace. We see them every day – they thrive in cities. Largely omnivourous, highly fecund and with group breeding behaviours they do well around humans. That’s why they are known as ‘Bin Chickens.”
For large birds, they are fly a lot. We don’t photograph them as often as we should, because we see them airborne so often. As large birds with relatively slow flight they are very easy to capture in flight. Perhaps so easy we ignore them.
Behold the magnificent Bin Chicken (Threskiornis molucca) in flight.
