Kori Bustard

Ardeotis kori (Burchell, 1822)

The Kori Bustard (Ardeotis kori) is a large bird native to Africa. It is a member of the bustard family, which all belong to the order Gruiformes and are restricted to the Old World. It is one of the four species (ranging from Africa to India to Australia) in the large-bodied Ardeotis genus. In fact, the male Kori Bustard may be the heaviest living bird capable of flight. This species, like most bustards, is a ground-dwelling bird and an opportunistic omnivore. Male Kori Bustards, which can be more than twice as heavy than the female, attempt to breed with as many females as possible and then take no part in the raising of the young. The nest is similarly a shallow hallow into the earth, often disguised by tall savannah grasses. The specific epithet kori is derived from the Tswana name for this bird - Kgori. Source: Wikipedia
