Exploring Vera Plaines last Sunday, Paul and I came across a Black-bellied bustard sneaking through the savanna. It is a large bird about the size of a turkey. She seemed to prefer running away and hiding, rather than taking flight. Being female, she possibly had a nest nearby.
Difficult to see when she wasn’t moving, her brown and buff camouflage blended in perfectly with the dried savanna grasses.
