[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca) and is a common bird in Sydney. They inhabit most of Australia except for some western regions. They live in wetlands such as swamps, however I have often seen them congregating at garbage dumps. They feed on small insects and snakes, frogs, crayfish, crabs, mussels and worms. Their nests are made of sticks and built in reeds or bushes among swamps.

This picture was taken at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney where I found a pack of ibises near the garden pond.
