Here an upload of a Red Crested Bustard, this time they were hard to spot but you could hear them very good.
The call they make is so funny and loud. It starts with a serie of click´s tic tic tic which build into an extended serie of piping whistles, pi..pi..pi...pipity-pipity.
I would like, that it was able that you all can hear this call.
Because that it super.
I hope you like it.

This is a fantastic capture of a Red-crested Bustard. Amazing that you could come so close to get this sharpness and detail and to get him calling is an extra bonus! This image desrves more credit!

bonjour vivian
le fait que l'oiseau ai le bec grand ouvert donne une sorte de mouvement et de vie mais c'est un peu dommage que la queue se trouve coupée a cause du cadrage un peu etroit.
