Large and stout, the Hadedahs make their presence known with their raucous cackle. Their range has expanded in recent years crossing the Western Cape mountains in the 1980’s. They have adapted well to human environments, particularly golf courses and sports playing fields. Watching them in action picking over a green lawn is a sight to behold. Here in the late afternoon the sunlight catches their glossy feathers as they dig for sandlice and other delicacies.
