The Hadada Ibis is distributed in Africa south of the Sahara except in the south-west.

It is found near streams and rivers in woodland and in marshes, mangroves and forest edges where it feeds on insects, spiders, crustaceans, snails and earthworms.

It is dull brown with a pale malar stripe and a green gloss on the wing coverts.

It can be quite a noisy bird with a loud, nasal call.
