Hadada Ibis (Hadeda) - A Very Loud Friend
The Hadeda is sometimes called the "most raucous bird in Africa", according to one person's YouTube post. But the sound this bird makes is what most South Africans miss when they leave the country. It is sometimes called the "sound of home" when people hear this bird calls. They are sometimes so loud that you will stop having a conversation so that they can fly away. When they sit on your roof you will want to throw them with something (without hurting them) to get them away. But this is truly a beautiful and majestic animal. Please enjoy the beauty of this very loud and sometimes irritating friend!
