Cream-coloured courser

Cursorius cursor


It wasn't very abundant on the island and this was the only specimen I managed to photograph close enough. I never saw it fly as it prefers to run away from danger. It is pretty big seeing the rest of the bird fauna of the island.

thankyou maria :) I find it strange that this is the first time I observed this bird, as it has a very wide range
