Description

I was told that a few birds had appeared on Western Spring Lake during the weekend by keen birder Chris Mules. So I went along on Monday (29 June) to see them - they were still there. Chris Mules kindly sent me this image (way better than what I got in the fading light) of two birds she had observed on 28 June 2015.

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.
