Questo è il maschio,purtroppo non ho foto
della femmina,che ha una livrea più
mimetica.E'alto circa 50 cm e frequenta
zone aperte e secche.
In afrikaans:Witvlerkkhorhaan.
---This is the male,sorry I don't
have pictures from the female,
more clear and mimetic.
About 50 cm,lives in dry and open
grasslands.

Have you ever seen their mating display Andrea? Whenever I hear them in mating season, I always stop to watch.

You missed something very interesting. Next time you are in SA, ask your guide about it if you have one. If you see them calling, stop and watch them.
