With the perfect conditions in Mapungubwe's western section in early January 2008 there were loads of these little birds present. Really difficult to photograph as one would only see them flying up from your feet when flushed and dropping in the tall grass 5m further on. I was extremely lucky to get this male after he dropped back in the grass. He looked at our car for about 3 seconds before he ducked down and disappeared crawling through the grass. He also had two females with him. Photographed near Maloutswa hide on 03 January 2008.
