Abstract

We provide first evidence of cannibalism in fledglings of the Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca) and Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus). The ibis only fed on carcasses of dead conspecifics (indirect cannibalism); the pelican consumed live pelican (heterocannibalism) and ibis nestlings.
