What bird?

By ddolfelin
No idea what make of bird this might be.
A little longer than a Rhode Island Red hen but slimmer.

It didn't seem able to fly but as it was part of a visiting 'zoo', perhaps it had clipped wings.
Swift, darting movements.

The ' zoo ' obviously think its worth showing. Shame, it should be flying off somewhere.

Definitely not a curlew. I would have said some sort of Ibis. Not a Sacred that's black and white.......................was there not a notice on its cage Wink

No idea what it is either but I love the way you have captured the feathers.

No doubt somebody will ID the bird for you.
It was obviously much to busy to pose for you Peter.

Could be the Buff-Necked Ibis from South America, I'm not 100% sure but I'd say it is part of the Ibis family.......GrinGrinGrinGrin
