Africa From A to Z - K

Today's letter in our A to Z of Africa is K, which gives us two birds in Tanzania and an antelope in Botswana.
Buy stretched canvas wallart of Kori Bustard
Kori Bustard
The kori bustard is the largest flying bird native to Africa, in fact, the male kori bustard may be the heaviest living animal capable of flight. This species, like most bustards, is a ground-dwelling bird and an opportunistic omnivore. Male kori bustards, which can be more than twice as heavy than the female, attempt to breed with as many females as possible and then take no part in the raising of the young. This was seen on the Serengeti, Tanzania.
Buy stretched canvas wallart of Black Kite
A Black Kite at Ngorongoro crater, Tanzania. The black kite is a medium-sized bird of prey. Unlike others of the group, black kites are opportunistic hunters and are more likely to scavenge. They spend a lot of time soaring and gliding in thermals in search of food. Their angled wing and distinctive forked tail make them easy to identify. They are also vociferous with a shrill whinnying call. 
Buy stretched canvas wallart of Kudo
A kudu in Chobe National Park, Botswana. The kudu is a sub-species of antelope that is found inhabiting mixed shrub woodland, and savanna plains in eastern and southern Africa. The kudu relies heavily on close, dense thickets in which the kudu can escape to and hide when it feels threatened.
