Northern Bald Ibis, Hermit Ibis, or Waldrapp.

Head of Northern Bald Ibis, Hermit Ibis, or Waldrapp (Geronticus eremita). Religious traditions helped this species to survive in one Turkish colony long after the species had disappeared from Europe, since it was believed that the ibis migrated each year to guide Hajj pilgrims to Mecca. The Northern Bald Ibis became one of the world's earliest officially protected species in 1504, thanks to a decree by Archbishop Leonhard of Salzburg, but died out in Austria as elsewhere in Europe.
