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.

Black Cockatoo.
