The photos of the northern Bald Ibis were not taken in Ethiopia but in Bad Mergentheim / Germany. Here they have a breeding program and birds are released to wild.
In the past the Northern Bald Ibis was common in the Ethiopian highlands spending here the winter coming from Syria and Turkey. Than for several years no records. 2013 in January a group of 5 birds coming from Turkey was seen at their usual wintering site.
