Southern Bald Ibis

Geronticus calvus (endemic)

This special ibis is easily distinguished by its bald, red head and dark, glossy coat. We first recorded this unique bird in March 2010 while travelling through Mooi River.

Grasslands around the Drakensberg, Karkloof and Harrismith are reliable spots for this species.
