seriously i have chooks.. they crap like that 50 times a day.... bird of some kind for sure..
I take it from this that you've never actually experienced pelican crap. I suggest taking a drive to Redcliffe and crossing the bridge back and forth until you do. You will find that pelicans crap about 12L of stuff at a time, making it very recognisable!
Despite all the comedy, it's nice to se you're optimistic and open to future poo posts
In all seriousness, it is most likely a bird - I thought you could have been close to the mark with the ibis guess.
Morning all, thanks for the ongoing suggestions. I think we're getting closer to ID'ing what did this. I'll be keeping a close eye on next door's chooks for starters.
As for the other bird theories, I'm still unsure. I've not seen an ibis in the garden for months - I'm out there quite a bit as my little boy is very keen on playing outside. However, I wasn't aware that birds had uric acid similar to reptiles.
@BadNewsSham - sorry, I wasn't suggesting that it was some sort of super-gecko! I was merely saying it looked similar but obviously much larger, so I was guessing that the blue-tongued skink I've seen around might have been responsible. Thanks very much for the book recommendation. I prob will end up checking it out just to satisfy my curiosity.
I'll update this thread if I discover anything else to report. Thanks again to all of you.
