Description

The mating display for this bird involves the male flying high in the air and dropping from the sky like he is dead, he then picks up his wings and flies away when he is about to hit the ground. It was really fun to watch. Not so great to photograph, video would have been better.

Description from Wikipedia

Bustards, including floricans and korhaans, are large and highly terrestrial birds mainly associated with dry open country and steppes in the Old World. They range in length from 40 to 150 cm (16 to 59 in). They make up the family Otididae (formerly known as Otidae). Bustards are omnivorous and opportunistic eating leaves, buds, seeds, fruit, small vertebrates, and invertebrates.

No range data available.
