[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
black korhaan - Eupodotis afra.
Common resident. Pairs or groups in open veld. makes 'krraa-a-a-a-wet-de-wet-de' from a slightly elevated position or in flight.

This was a very unexpected shot. I saw this bird at a radio flyers (model plane) club just outside johannesburg city. Its so amazing how these birds adapt to a city surrounding with minimal vegetation.

Reference: Newman's Birds of Southern Africa

Bel Outarde que je n'ai aperçu qu'en Namibie. J'espère avoir l'occasion de la rencontrer de nouveau..... Quant à ta photo elle est superbement bien prise, Paul.
