Karoo Korhaan in late evening light


Karoo Bustard - Mustakurkkutrappi

The Karoo Korhaan, also known as Karoo Bustard (Eupodotis vigorsii, “mustakurkkutrappi” in Finnish) is endemic to western South Africa and southern Namibia. As the name of the bird suggests, this picture was taken from a car window in Karoo National Park. Like in this picture, they can typically be seen as pairs, very rarely solitarily. The plumage help them to hide easily, but the voice is loud and frequent.

I will post every week “Thursday Twitters”, pictures of birds mainly from
Finland and Southern Africa, occasionally also taken elsewhere.
