Kori Bustard
Ardeotis kori
Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources










The kori bustard is seen in the dry northern grasslands. It's numbers are declining due in part to the bird trade, hunting and declining habitat. The upper four photos (Olasiti, 6-06) are of an adult and 2 immatures, crossing dry grassland, then eating from the surface of small acacia trees: the adult appears to scrape something from the bark as the immature watches and then the immature moves to a different tree and follows the adult example. The flight photo is courtesy of Karoline Hornik (Serengeti, 10-10). All of the other photos were taken in Ngorongoro Crater. Click the photo above to see 20 enlargements.
