During the bridal parade, the male emits a particular cry, made up of a whistle followed by a noise evoking that of a bottle which one emerges.

Hi Nyala,

Wrong ID. This is a rather small Bustard, as Bustards go. Adult male ca. 2.7 kg.

This is an immature bird. It is a male (evidenced by the incipient little black line below the throat and progressing down the ventral aspect of the neck).

This is Eupodotis melanogaster notophila. Black-bellied Bustard.

Hello Nyala,
Beautiful photo of this Black-bellied Bustard. Great natural colours and good sharpness. Maybe a bit more contrast is possible. Very nice composition, DOF and POV.
