The Australian white ibis is considered both a cultural icon and a pest

It’s the most popular bird in South Australia. Yet, people call it the « bin chicken ». This is why.

    We have them in South Africa called the Sacred Ibis and then we have its brown cousin the Hadeda, which is a pest but it is protected by law because people would shoot them because they scream all hours of the night and day in large flocks.🙄
