These large birds have all-white body plumage apart from dark plumes on the rump. The bald head and neck, thick curved bill and legs are black.
The white wings show a black rear border in flight. Sexes are similar, but juveniles have dirty white plumage, a smaller bill and some feathering on the neck. Females are slightly smaller with shorter bills.
This bird is usually silent, but occasionally makes some croaking noises, unlike its vocal relative, the hadada ibis.
