This is one seriously ugly bird. The Marabou Stork is a scavenger and often cooperates with African vultures in cleaning up carcasses left by other animal hunters. I call him Steptoe.
These photos were taken mainly in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.
The Trumpeter Hornbill is no beauty either.
These elegant birds are a total contrast - Grey Crowned Cranes.
As is this Kori Bustard.
Kori Bustard displaying.
These Black Headed Herons are not shy.
Finally, a Sand Grouse (I think - happy to be corrected, if I'm wrong!)
