Some Birds in the Royal Botanic Garden near the Sydney Opera House

As an opera fan, I have been to see three operas at the famous Sydney Opera House in Australia. But this is not the only singing going on near here.

Here are some photos of common birds found in the Botanical gardens which is just steps from the Opera House.

Surprisingly, the Australian White Ibises are very tame here and considered a nuisance bird:
