Courser, Burchell's

Unread post by wildtuinman » Mon Jul 11, 2016 9:18 am

And so to complete the Courser family - the Burchell's Courser, a rather nomadic species and tricky to find in South Africa.
Distinguished from the Temminck's by its grey (not rufous) hind crown.

Haha!

thanks Ladybirder, pity it was so far away. Would've loved to get a close up photo of it, but so be it.
