The Burchell's Sandgrouse

Pterocles burchelli

Quelli nelle foto sono maschi.
Volano verso pozze lontanissime per raccogliere
acqua da portare al nido.Spesso in stormi considerevoli.
---These ones are males.
They fly considerable distances daily to collect water
in the breast feathers.Many times they fly in large flocks.

Fantastic photos. Not sure if I saw these in Botswana or not, I certainly did not identify them. Diane
