Kori Bustard (Ardeotis kori)

During a trip to Masai Mara we saw this Kori Bustard walking along in the grass looking for insects, grassshoppers and snakes, which are its main appetite.

Kori Bustards are known to inflate their throat ruff and chest when threatened by other species. They are normally seen walking in the savannah plains, but occasionally do take to flight when fleeing from threat.
