@erkpod I had an unexpectedly big gap between meetings.

@erkpod We did all that during my extensive Twitter thread about bin chickens.

@staticsan Eh? That’s The Rocks, but the sky is very blue all over.

I cannot keep up with all your ibis-related tweets, and now I have to head up to The Rocks for my 1430 meeting. Do try to cope without me.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I wouldn’t eat an ibis, given the crap they eat these days. Anyway, they’re “protected native fauna”. @RealNickHodge twitter.com/munin/status/7…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The ibis is a pretty half-arsed Australian animal, though. It should be poisonous or something.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’m not sure that I wanted to know this much about bin chickens. But it was fun seeing that guy make the mistake of giving one of them food.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I think we are all learning a very great many things about bin chickens today.

Tagged, yes, and the annual “National Australian white ibis community survey” is soon, on 17-23 October.. twitter.com/RantRotAndRuin…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

A juvenile magpie just tried to take one of the chicken bones but an ibis attacked it and now the magpie is confused.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I will say, though, that there’s still some wetlands with ibises in western Sydney, and those ibises eat properly and keep themselves clean.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

That arsehat ibis is going to fill up with bones. Surely they can’t digest bones? Or at least not quickly?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Also, this means that the bin chickens have turned carnivore.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Yes, it’s stealing chicken, and one of the stupid birds is swallowing the bones whole. CHICKEN BONES ARE NOT WORMS. twitter.com/Omshadiddle/st…

@will_ock Yes but I’m starting to get the impression you’re a bit weird.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@munin They’re native. Australian white ibis (Threskiornis moluccus). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia…

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@oberonsghost They also nest in the trees on Macquarie Street, by the Botanic Gardens. And in Penrith.

“Ibis Invasion”, from @ABCscience (Nov 2007) abc.net.au/science/articl… (AKA Tip Turkey too, apparently.)

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@munin It’s a wetland poke-beak-in-mud bird. We did build a city on top of its habitat. But they fossick in bins and get covered in filth.
