      Thanks Alain,

      I also noted the natural hybridization of Platalea alba x Platalea leucorodia; an hybrid that was only known from captivity.

      is it an hybrid observed in nature from non native populations of the Sacred Ibis?

      Hello Serge,

      Yes: ringed as a pullus in 2008 in the Valle Mandriole reserve near Ravenna, Italy, this bird was seen up to 2010 at least.

      The picture shows an hybrid African Spoonbill (Platalea alba) X Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus), taken recently [August 2008] in the bird sanctuary of Punte Alberete, Ravenna, NE Italy. The sanctuary host a huge colony of herons, egrets, spoonbills, ibis and cormorants. Both African Spoonbill and Sacred Ibis are breeding in the colony. An hybrid Eurasian X African Spoonbill was recorder recently there. [...] Photo courtesy of Roberto Zaffi.
