Australian white ibis (Threskiornis molucca)

The Australian white ibis is identified by its almost entirely white body plumage and black head and neck. The head is featherless and its black bill is long and down-curved. During the breeding season the small patch of skin on the under-surface of the wing changes from dull pink to dark scarlet. Adult birds have a tuft of cream plumes on the base of the neck. Females differ from males by being slightly smaller, with shorter bills. Young birds are similar to adults, but have the neck covered with black feathers. In flight, flocks of Australian white ibis form distinctive V-shaped flight patterns. Another common name for this bird is sacred ibis, but this more appropriately refers to a closely related African species.
