Kori Bustard

Ardeotis kori


The male of the Kori Bustard is possibly the heaviest flying bird in the world, with its only competition being the Great Bustard. These birds exhibit heavy sexual dimorphism, with the male sometimes almost twice the weight of the female. While scarce through most of their range, in Kenya they are positively abundant, especially in the Northeeastern region.


They mainly inhabit grassland savannah with low annual rainfall.


These birds are listed as near threatened on the IUCN Red List due to habitat loss and hunting.
