Yellow-throated Sandgrouse

Pterocles gutturalis

This large, bulky sandgrouse with its charecteristic call has an incredibly wide range; with a highly fragmented Afrotropical distribution occurring discontinuously from northern Ethiopia through East Africa, southwards to southern Africa.

This was my last sandgrouse to see in Southern Africa, and after getting a tip off of a drinking site near Pilanesberg Nature Reserve, I eventually caught up with them in September 2019.
