Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A massive, long-legged, terrestrial bustard with a black-and-white checkered pattern on the wing bend. It is conspicuous and encountered regularly in semi-arid shrubland, grassland, and savanna. Singles and pairs march slowly and purposefully, feeding on plant matter, large insects, and small vertebrates. Flies low, flapping with slow shallow wing beats. The males display in loose leks by puffing out their throat plumes and cocking their tails. Similar Arabian Bustard is smaller than Kori Bustard and has white and black checkered pattern at wing bend.
