Birds with a colour as part of their name.

Featuring only Australian birds

this week.

Straw Necked Ibis. 

So named because of straw coloured

feathers on its neck. 

I doubt ‘straw’ is a colour but added it

because flocks of Straw Necked Ibis

used to invade our paddocks to eat grubs

which thrived under certain weather conditions.

 

White Faced Heron

 

White Necked Heron

or…

…Pacific Heron

Australian White Ibis

 

Red Rump Parrot

Black Cockatoo.   

A bit of a novelty this far south
