I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light

Straw-Necked Ibis at Coolart


If you wish to see a range of birds nesting, Spring is the best time to visit Coolart wetlands at Somers on the Mornington Peninsula.


The straw-necked ibis has fascinating feather colours that shine and change in the sunlight.

That ibis is a new one on me Gemma. Superb iridescence on those feathers. The wetlands must be teeming with wonderful birds.
