Description

We left Wakkerstroom thinking we had missed one of our targets, the endemic Blue Bustard (aka Blue Korhaan). Then on the highway towards Johannesburg we had to screech to a halt on the shoulder because of these birds; two females and a male.
The male is to the far right, and is puffing out his throat in agitation at our presence.

The only Bustard we saw on the first 2.5 days in Kruger NP was the Red-crested Korhaan on the first afternoon. We really wanted to see some Kori Bustards, and by our third (and last) morning in the park we began to worry we would miss them.
Just as we were giving up hope, though, we encountered a pair of them not far from Ntandanyathi Hide south of Lower Sabie.
These are beautiful bustards, and the heaviest flying bird in the world.

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.
