Black-headed Ibis at Ponda

During our trip to Ponda, we could spot some birds  in a field filled with water and one of them is Black-headed Ibis.



They have white-plumage with some greyer areas on the wings. The bald head, the neck and legs are black. The thick down curved bill is dusky black. 



Their diet is fish, frogs and other water creatures, as well as on insects.
It can be seen walking around on marshy land probing with its bill into soft mud and shallow water.

That's a real cool looking bird Rajesh, also one i've not heard of before.
All the best, Gordon.
