Strut

Just a couple of months back we were in Alice Springs with Geoff and Su, and we made time to go to the Nature Park, which is fabulous, and pleanty to see, do and learn. Most of the native fauna here are rescue animals. This photo is of an Australian Bustard, this is a male Bustard and he is really strutting his stuff, the noise he was making to impress the female Bustards was phenomenal, he was so loud we could hear him a long way off, long before we got to the enclosure. He strutted along, lifted his neck, which swelled as he made his dramtic call, and fluffed his feathers, a real performance.
