I have hundreds of them around my dams, they eat snails and worms and so on, I have never seen them eating any fish.

That's because Hadeda's have good taste Costa! :-)

In all seriousness they don't eat fish. They make a loud noise and they taste not very good. Useless bloody bird. Even Costa's big duck has more value! :-)

I guess that's why they are so many at Costa's place- even they love the quality of his fish and cant get to see enough of them. bounce bounce

Heard of a few claims that they do eat fish if there is nothing else but I doubt it.
They are more than welcome around my ponds.

I understand there is a bird that look just like a Hadeda and he eats fish. Don't know what they call it. Embarassed
