Hadada Ibis (Bostrychia hagedash)

Hadada Ibis (Bostrychia hagedash)_3

The Wikipedia Talk page for the Hadada Ibis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Hadada_ibis) contains a nice little diatribe as to whether this is a Hadada, Hadeda, or Hadida. However, the page is considered “Low-importance” on the Wikipedia Bird Project scale.

The talk page for the Wikipedia Bird Project does not discuss whether “Low-importance” should be hyphenated. It does, however, state the position that ALL birds are of low importance by default and must have done something of note to be elevated to a higher status. No one can seem to agree about the chicken and the goose.

This ibis, however, doesn’t care.



One interesting thing they do at the Kansas City Zoo that I don’t see much is the ability get a ticket on a little boat that takes you across the lake and back. I had hoped for more photography opportunities than were presented, but after a lot of walking on a hot day, it’s nice to take a little ride … even if it’s awfully tempting to throw some of the less well-behaved parents overboard.

I did get to see this little bridge which was more photogenic when I was not actually on it.
