Displaying Male Kori Bustard

"There are many different species in the Bustard family.  The largest by far is the Kori. I remember the first time seeing a Kori.  I was shocked at how big it was. Up to that moment I was completely unaware of its existence.  The Kori is one of the world’s heaviest flying birds. It is however very rare to see a Kori flying.

Kori Bustard are birds of the open grasslands.   Smaller bustards are often referred to as Korhaan especially in South Africa.  Male and female Kori Bustards are very similar looking.  This is certainly not the case during breeding season when the male is puffed out in his “royal display”.   During this display, males will make a deep “ooom, ooom” call that is similar in sound to a lion."  - Kim Diment
