Kori Bustard

The Kori Bustard (Afrikaans name, Gompou) is a really big bird and is the regions largest flying bird which is not found outside of the national parks. Their numbers are declining rapidly due to climate change so to see one of these birds was a huge plus in our book. Once again a lifer for us. Seen in the Kruger National Park.
