Fairly large and lanky bustard. The face is boldly marked, with black throat and eyebrow patches and a rufous crown. These markings are fainter on females. In flight, shows a large white patch on the wings that is more extensive than those of other bustards in its range. A generally scarce and likely nomadic species that is found in dry savanna and semi-desert habitats of the Sahel. Similar to White-bellied Bustard, but larger and lankier, with a different head and neck pattern.
