Bird "Red naped black Ibis"

By ukgubbi
Thanks for all the views, votes, comments and user award on my previous upload.

Today's upload is that of a bird called " Red naped black ibis". which I found yesterday in a dried out tank bed. The information I got in the internet is as follows

The Red-naped Ibis (Pseudibis papillosa) also known as the Indian Black Ibis or just the Black Ibis, is a species of ibis found in parts of the Indian Subcontinent. The sexes are alike. It has a curlew-like long down-curved bill, a black head with a patch of crimson, and a white patch near the shoulder. This largish black bird is found at lakes, in marshes, in riverbeds and on irrigated farmland—it is not as aquatic as many other species of ibis. It is gregarious and generally forages on margins of wetlands in small numbers. It nests in trees and breeds from March to October in North India.
Hope all of you will like these images.

A wonderful looking bird, one I can't remember seeing before.

Regarding the post processing, its leg looks a little odd because the rest of the background has been blurred, but perhaps a minor point and just me being fussy! Smile
