The Hadada or Hadeda Ibis, Bostrychia hagedash, is an ibis found in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This fellow was looking for earthworms in my garden. He was using his long scimitar-like bill to probe the soft soil. These birds also favour snails and will feed in garden beds around residential homes. (Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa)
