Shortly after 6 a.m. four kookas arrived (I was a second too late to capture all four)! The following sequence took place over 15 minutes, with many kooka visits!

The kooka in the last one was a puffy youngster who had to wait his turn!

Australian Ibis at Bruce's (his screenshot); had not seen this bird before. Just wanted to be sure it got into the BruceCam forum for posterity.

I am glad Bruce got that screenshot and that you posted it here, RB. Thanks to you both we are getting to see a huge variety of birds at Bruce's. ♥

I well remember seeing Ibises when visiting Australia - maybe they are more often seen in coastal Queensland, where I was?
