The family of Black-headed Ibis (Threskiornis melanocephalus) is clicked at Delhi National Zoological Park.

It is a species of wading birds of the ibis family Threskiornithidae, which breeds in South Asia and Southeast Asia from Pakistan to India, Sri Lanka east up to Japan. It builds a stick nest in a tree and lays 2-4 eggs.

It occurs in marshy wetlands inland and on the coast, where it feeds on various fish, frogs and other water creatures, as well as on insects.

Adults are typically 75cm long and white-plumaged, with some greyer areas on the wings. The bald head, the neck and legs are black. The thick curved bill is dusky yellow. Sexes are similar, but juveniles have whiter necks and a black bill.

Hi Subhash,
Very good action shot. Nice composition. Though, the white feathers of the birds are over-exposed. Although, I think that it can not be totally corrected through WS, but I have made an attempt. Please let me know if you like it.
