A white-bellied bustard. Bustards are large, heavily built birds that move mostly by walking and running on the ground. They hunt for small prey like lizards and grasshoppers, but also eat seeds and shoots. The White-bellied Bustard is smaller than some of its relatives in the bustard family and is relatively common in Kenya and much of Africa in open, semi-arid, or seasonally dry habitats. The birds form small flocks that move together in search of food.
