Silly bird

This is a bird called a bustard. They look hilarious.

Here are a few photos of the real thing.

Apparently they’re native to Africa and India. I read in a book somewhere where they ate bustard and proclaimed it delicious, and I didn’t know what in the heck a bustard was. (It was probably in The Flame Trees of Thika, come to think of it.)

I really wanted to title this post “You silly bustard”, but didn’t think it wise. đŸ™‚

  1. What a fun critter to draw! Looks like a relative to herons and ostriches and roadrunners. *does a quick search* Huh… Hope that book about eating them wasn’t written recently. Guess they’re endangered.
