Description

A mixed age flock of some100 royal spoonbill at Harts Creek with all of the adults in breeding plumage was a spectacular site. I was privileged to observe these birds very close-up thanks to them being extremely tolerant of a me in camouflage clothing in a camouflage-coloured kayak. these birds seem far less worried about water-borne approaches than land approaches and, indeed, walked closer to me until I was eventually surrounded by feeding, quarrelling, displaying birds. Their social vocalisations were remarkably like the low pitched long-drawn-out throaty chortle that happy hens make when communing with other members of their flock, whereas their dispute calls to each other were more heron like - a harsher croak.

Description from Wikipedia

The family Threskiornithidae includes 34 species of large wading birds. The family has been traditionally classified into two subfamilies, the ibises and the spoonbills; however recent genetic studies are casting doubt on the arrangement, and revealing the spoonbills to be nested within the old world ibises, and the new world ibises as an early offshoot.
