Hamerkop (Scopus umbretta)

The Hamerkop (Scopus umbretta), is a medium-sized wading bird. It is the only living species in the genus Scopus and the family Scopidae. The shape of its head with a long bill and crest at the back is reminiscent of a hammer, which has given this species its name. It ranges from Africa, Madagascar to Arabia, in wetlands of a wide variety, including estuaries, lakesides, fish ponds, riverbanks and rocky coasts in Tanzania. The Hamerkop, which is a sedentary bird that often show local movements, is not globally threatened and is locally abundant in Africa and Madagascar. (Scopidae – Hamerkop Family)

    • Officially they leave out the extra “m.” I always enjoy seeing these Hamerkops at the Zoos. The ones shown by Dan and I were the first time we enjoyed seeing them. Now, there are some here at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.
