Recently while on a trip to South Africa, Pharrell Williams posted an Instastory to his 11 million followers asking them what the sound was that he was hearing every morning.

It was of-course the Hadeda, an ibis found in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It is named for its loud three to four note calls uttered in flight especially in the mornings and evenings when they fly out or return to their roost trees. Although not as dependent on water as some ibises, they are found near wetlands and often live in close proximity to humans, foraging in cultivated land and gardens.

Sine, a blogger who moved to South Africa wrote a whole piece on the natural alarm-clock which we have all become so accustomed to hearing.

“I know most of you expats contemplating a move to South Africa are worried about crime. But you know what you should REALLY be worried about? The Hadeda!

Yes, that’s right, a bird. And not just any bird. The Hadeda (curiously a member of the Ibis family) will be the reason you will wake up at five a.m. on your first South African morning, convinced that someone’s killing your neighbor. Or maybe more like your neighbor’s pig. Holy S#!t! It is a screech to wake up the dead.”

    I AM NORMALLY A FAN OF THIS SITE, BUT DONT KNOW HOW IT IS NOW ACCEPTABLE AND ‘FUNNY’ TO POST VIDEOS OF PEOPLE SWEARING. THIS SHOULD BE AN UPLIFTING AND CHILD FRIENDLY SITE.
