Fantastic pictures Andrea especially the second one. Have you ever eaten them?

Joan: Not in Africa.
But in Italy a bird very similar is very common for eating.
And it's really better than chicken.

What an interesting bird! I’ve never seen it before. What interesting head it has and also its body looks like a ball. I like its dark gray and white plumage.

Wow! Great captures! The level of detail you've got in the feathers is impressive. I always love seeing those textures.

Thank you for sharing!

Hi White man Andrea
