One of the world's heaviest flying birds (although it prefers to run), the Kori Bustard stands over 4 feet high. The plumage is mainly brown with a long, thick, pale neck barred with brown. The dark crown finishes in a trailing crest and the eye area is white with a yellow eye. There are two subspecies, similar in appearance: one from East Africa and one from southern Africa.
