Caption: Hadeda ibis head (Bostrychia hagedash). This is a wading bird with long legs, a long neck and a long bill for feeding on insects, crustaceans, spiders, snails, small lizards and earthworms. It inhabits grasslands, bushlands and shore edges where it forages on the ground for its prey. It is usually found in groups of 5-20 birds. When disturbed, it flies off uttering its raucous "ha ha hadeda" call for which it is named. The hadeda ibis is found in southern Africa. Photographed on Leisure Isle, Knysna, Western Cape Province, South Africa.
