Brown in Town -

The Hadeda Ibis has a distinctively loud, penetrating and recognisable haa-haa-haa-de-dah call that is often heard when the birds are flying or when startled, hence the name, Hadeda.
Hadeda Ibis move around in flocks numbering up to 20 birds or 100 out of breeding season.

I think Hadedah Ibis are essentially chameleons, they are the Grey Ibis when they are at the coast... Betty's Bay apparently.

My dad says that you are a man of high stature,
But I'll bet that you are a real good head scratcher,
Please tell me, for one who's quite plainly astute,
Just why keep a gold medal inside your boot?

PD Scullin - the Irish are back and they are understandably pissed. Northern Ireland, let them have their own referendum and decide what they want to do... The English are so rigid sometimes.
