Nice shot. While the "Bin Chicken" cops a bit of a bad wrap here in Oz I love them for their textured skin. One of my own favourite photos is a similar shot of the white ibis. Well done.

What a great catch, Todd! I didn't know such an Ibis existed - I wonder what evolutionary process gave this type of Ibis a dark head and beak????

Thanks so much! I assumed because we saw them just about everywhere that we went, that they are regarded similar to our wild Turkeys here in the US.

Sticking their heads in mud, maybe? The Australian Straw-necked Ibis is similarly dark, at least on the head!

Thanks Rob! This one wasn't bothered at all with me getting close up to him. A lot of people were around, so I suppose he was used to it.
