Question: Why is a hadeda always screaming when high up in the air?
Answer: This African bird is afraid of heights
Hadeda Ibis ((Bostrychia hagedash) is a large bird with a habitat in Southern Africa; mainly near streams and rivers. In flight it utters a long and loud ‘haaaa’ or ‘ha-ha, ha-de-dah’; hence the name. (Data derived from ‘Birds of Southern Africa’ by O.P.M. Prozesky).
