Not so Sacred, Really

The sacred ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus) that live on the Atlantic coast of France may want to watch their backs, according to this report from Yahoo! News UK. Groups concerned with the African birds' penchant for disturbing native bird species are calling for a culling, or at least some egg addling. The ibis were intentionally introduced to France in the 1970s as part of a nature park. There are now more than 3000 of them living on the French coast. Those interested in bird invasions will also want to check out this ISW post from last week about the Muscovy duck.
