Glossy Ibis does Xmas turkey impressions



What to serve up on Christmas Eve? How about Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) doing turkey impressions.  

No reindeer visible lately so Yellow-billed Spoonbill (Platalea flavipes)

and Brolga (Grus rubicunda) will have to do as potential sled-pullers.

Coming back down to ground, Eastern Yellow Robin (Eopsaltria australis) lights up any forest scene.

And cooing over all, Pied Imperial-Pigeon (Ducula bicolor).

Bonus poem (after fun minutes two morns ago in Tyto):

Birdhide  footbridge  handrail
treesnake handheld  overarm
outswing  paperbark  highrise
                                  farewell

May all be of good cheer this and every season.

Season's Greetings Tony! I always enjoy your photos and that Glossy Ibis is great. I think your photos must represent a lot of patience to observe such interesting poses - plus a good dash of luck!
