Hadada Ibis - Lincoln Park Zoo
This little bird is telling you
A hadada ibis new chick
Is hatched at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
I'm both growing and learning quick.
Sub saharan Africa is
Home to my family in kind.
My scimitar bill's good for biz
For digging underground to find
Critters that are yummy to eat.
The red striped bill matches my toes.
Iredescent purple wings - neat!
Wow fashion statement says such clothes.
Why's hadada part of my name?
'Haa-haa-haa-de-dah, ' I proclaim.
