Hagedash length 65-76 cm and weighing about 1.25 kg. Depending on the subspecies, the color of the plumage varies between gray and olive-brown, the upper wings are green with a metallic sheen. Unlike many other ibises, it does not have prominent crest feathers. The downwardly bent beak is colored in the same way as the plumage.


Hagedash relatively common in eastern and southern Africa south of the Sahara. It is also common in West Africa, only slightly less frequently.


Like most ibises, the hagedash is also a sociable bird. In a flock, as a rule, from 5 to 30 individuals, sometimes up to 200. Birds often emit a characteristic loud call.


Hagedash food consists of insects and their larvae, worms, snails and their eggs, locusts, spiders, less often also of small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. The bird searches for food, clearing the ground with its beak.


Nests are built from twigs, grass and leaves on horizontal branches in trees, sometimes also in bushes or on telegraph masts. 2 or 3 eggs hatch for 25 to 28 days. Young birds become independent in about 49-50 days.
