Spotted Thick-knee bird
The Spotted Thick-knee can reach up to 45.5cm. With it's brown and white speckled coat, it is good at camouflaging itself and very difficult to spot. They are spread widely through sub-saharan Africa in savannahs and grasslands. They hunt mostly on the ground, eating small insects and lizards. (Spotted Dikkop - Burhinus capensis)
