Eupodotis rueppellii (near-endemic)
Slighlty smaller than the karoo korhaan, this near-endemic species has a distinctive black line down the front of its neck. It also has warmer brown upperparts that its karoo cousin, as well as a blue-tinged neck and a white face patch.
We were lucky to record these stunning korhaans on a number of occasions while on a 4 week road trip through Namibia in July 2012. Our best sightings took place between Aus and Sossusvlei and it Sossusvlei itself.
