Hadedas are beautiful birds that we often see in beautiful green gardens across South Africa.

We often do not notice them until they start flying. The hadeda is famously named for its loud three to four note calls uttered in flight, especially in the mornings and evenings when they fly out or return to their roosts.

International star Pharrell Williams visited South Africa over the weekend for the Global Citizen Festival at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. He was on stage with musical greats such as Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z, Usher, and Beyonce to honour the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela.

He, however, did not realise that he would be woken up by a hadeda! It is the funniest thing we have seen in a while!
