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. 🙂
