The Australian White Ibis has white plumage with a black legs, head and bill.
Its native habitat is in eastern, northern, and southwestern Australia. Being a wading bird it prefers marshes or wetlands. Due to times of drought, some have migrated to cities, and have adjusted well. Some consider these city dwellers as pests as they scavenge for food and sometimes spill the contents of rubbish bins and take food from picnickers.
Their natural diet consists of insects, fish, frogs, and other water dwellers.
