According to Frost, Hadedahs are birds "that make very, very, very annoying sounds and sometimes they wake me up. They have very long beaks and look a little bit like miniature cranes." I sense I will be talking about them a bit more on this trip so I recorded a short movie of one we saw on a walk today, unfortunately our upload speed is so slow that I can't share their forlorn honking.
Here is a borrowed picture of a hadedah. Mine are inadequate.

On our walk we also saw:
A squashed frog
A dove, killed on the electric fence of one of the neighbors
A blue-headed lizard
A hatched birds egg.
And we collected seed pods from various sprawling trees.
