I don’t mind birds at all but Ibis have become a bit of a nuisance in places especially around Sydney, in Wollongong they are no problem they are not in plague proportions.
They are like seagulls in England in that they find human food very handy and they rummage in bins. Lots of birds do the same thing eg crows but Ibis are so big and their beaks can reach so far.
When I first came to Sydney in the 60s they didn’t didn’t exist in the metropolitan area and I couldn’t understand how they had grown to be such a nuisance then I discovered it was all the fault of Taronga Zoo. It is quite an educational film but I don’t think they anticipated the “problem” they would become.
