Little Bustard

We saw this bird waaayyyy off the beaten track while we were in Spain. We were so far off there wasn't a track, just a few ruts through a field.
He was doing a mating display, jumping up and spreading his wings.
Our guide was impressive, he knew exactly where to go to get virtually every bird we wanted to see.

Tetrax tetrax

Breeds in open terrain vegetation tall enough to give it cover.
