The family of Bustards occurs in Africa, Eurasia and Australia. The height of the birds ranges from 38 cm to 130 cm. They have long broad wings, long strong legs with three short toes and a long neck. The beak is short, strong and flattened. Their habitat are free plains. They fly well, but are downright ground birds. All species are omnivorous. In courtship, the throat pouch serves to amplify the voice. The nest is an unpadded recess in the ground in which 1 to 5 eggs are laid. The young birds flee the nest.
