Black-bellied bustard

Lissotis melanogaster


Also known as the black bellied Korhaan, this large bird is experiencing population decline. Very striking bird with a distinctive call. Despite it's large size, you often hear one calling before you see it hunting for small invertebrates in the tall grass




we saw several - if they are looking away from you the brown body blends into the background
