Eupodotis caerulescens (endemic)
This beuatiful endemic can be distinguished from other korhaans by its blue neck and belly and contrasting chestnut back.
We first recorded this near-threatened korhaan in March 2010 while investigating Wakkerstroom. We located them at Fickland Pan, where they were flushed from the thick roadside grass. I am still waiting to get decent photographs of them but am hoping that more early morning trips to Devon in south east Gauteng will provide just this.
