Species: African Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus)

Location: Lake Jipe, Kenya

The sacred ibis gets its name from the fact that Thoth, the Ancient Egyptian god of wisdom and reason, was modelled with the head of an ibis.

This species is widespread across Sub-Saharan Africa, only being absent from dense forest and very arid areas.
