Indian Black Ibis (Black Ibis) Pictures and Detail 


Recently, I got a chance to take some pictures of a young Indian Black Ibis bird that was looking for insects. This bird is also called Red-naped ibis or black ibis and its scientific name is Pseudibis papillosa. We can recognize this bird with the crimson red patch on the head and a white patch on the shoulder, though, young Black ibis birds don't have a crimson color patch on the head.

We usually found other ibis birds near the water; however, Indian black ibis birds are not totally dependent on the water and we can find them in the dry areas too. These birds have very loud calls. I also got altered by his calls and got my camera to capture a few pics

These birds found in most parts of the Indian Subcontinent. The habitats of the black ibis can be found around rivers, lakes, wetlands, marshes, fields and they make their nests on the top of trees. Black ibis is a large bird with long legs and bill. Its feathers and wings are black with green-blue shades.

Both sexes of this bird are alike; however, juveniles don't have crown and bare heads. Black ibis are mostly silent birds; however, they make very strong calls during the breeding season. They mainly feed on insects, frogs, carrion, small vertebrates, and grain. These birds fly by making V Shape formation in the sky.

It is common to find these birds in Punjab and Haryana because it is their preferred place for breeding. This time, I got a chance to capture a pic of a young Indian Black Ibis and next time, I hope to capture pics of adult black ibis birds too.

Update 22-01-2020 - I have added two new pics of the Black Ibis which was wandering in search of insects in the nearby fields. This time again, it was a grown juvenile bird. These birds don't fear humans much and only get alerted when someone tries to be too close to them.
