"The Northern Bald Ibis is a migratory bird which was native in Central Europe until the 17th century, before it became extinct due to the huge hunting pressure. Today the Northern Bald Ibis is one of the most endangered bird species worldwide. In the context of an EU project (LIFE+ Biodiversity), with partners in Austria, Italy and Germany, the species is to be reintroduced in Europe."
Maybe not the prettiest bird in the world, but very interesting and this guy posed so nicely 8=)
Took this picture in the Nuremberg zoo.
