Pseudibis papillosa

The Black Ibis is a species of ibis found in parts of South Asia. It has a curlew-like long down-curved bill, a black head with a patch of crimson, and a white patch near the shoulder. This largish black bird is found at lakes, in marshes, in riverbeds and on irrigated farmland. It is not as aquatic as many other species of ibis. It is gregarious and generally forages on margins of wetlands in small numbers. It is a common breeding resident in India. It nests in trees and breeds from March to October in North India.
