Great shots! I was going to ask where you took the photos, then I discovered that it was an African Bustard not an Australian one.
The Australian Bustard has become very rare.

thanks

it had a cub and remnants of a kill on the cliff side and we watched as it broke cover went lower and into the open

we then saw the hyena below the kopjes and figured out the leopard moved to discourage it.

the leopard just moved out into the open and stayed there and the hyena left

on the eastern side of the Serengeti we found these Masai Giraffe Giraffa camelopardalis ssp. tippelskirchi:

BAD NEWS

Masai giraffes declared endangered
The subspecies in Kenya and Tanzania has declined by nearly 50 percent in the last 30 years, largely because of poaching and changes in land use.

BY RACHEL FOBAR

PUBLISHED JULY 12, 2019

SCIENTISTS HAVE DECLARED a subspecies of giraffe endangered.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), . . . announced Thursday that Masai giraffes, a subspecies spread throughout Kenya and Tanzania, are now endangered, primarily because of poaching and changes in land use. . . . There are an estimated 35,000 Masai giraffes remaining, but their population has fallen by nearly 50 percent in the last three decades. Africa’s overall giraffe population has decreased by up to 40 percent in that same time frame. . . . Although for years there’s been a consensus that there’s one species of giraffe with nine subspecies, evidence of genetic differences has emerged in recent years, suggesting that there are actually four species of giraffe and that the Masai is its own species . . .

Super image. Must get one of those to dispose of leftover bits of a fish dinner.

Add another compliment on that image Basie! I think I can handle the halitosis, but the hunger part is best avoided .
