A large, striking, dark ibis with a past- pale face and red legs, crown, and bill. The immature is duller, lacking red coloration. Small-to-medium-sized flocks forage for large insects and small animals in high-altitude grassland between 1200 and 1800 m, preferring short grass and recently burnt areas. It breeds in nearby rocky gorges and cliffs. Hadada Ibis is dark, and it may be confused for Southern Bald Ibis in flight, but Hadada Ibis has a thicker neck and less streamlined head.
