It almost looks like their bodies could be giant chocolate eggs. That would be yummy!

I'm glad I didn't miss this. I love the colors, love the birds, and am a big fan of Egyptian art (and animals). What more can I want?

Hmmm... tapirgal and I are for once not on the same page. These gold-leafed ibises look like "tourist" product. Forgive me if I''m wrong. Guess the bright bodies just don't appeal to my taste. Make an interesting photo, though.
