Among bustards, only male great bustards (Otis tarda) achieve similarly high weights (the mean mass of males in these species is roughly the same) making the male kori and great not only the two largest bustards but also arguably the heaviest living flying animals.
As a whole, other species, such as Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus), Andean condor (Vultur gryphus) and trumpeter swan (Cygnus buccinator), in which the larger males might match the average weight of the largest bustards and may weigh more on average between the sexes as they are less sexually dimorphic in mass than the giant bustards.
This species, like most bustards, is a ground-dwelling bird and an opportunistic omnivore.
Male kori bustards, which can be more than twice as heavy as the female, attempt to breed with as many females as possible and then take no part in the raising of the young.
A geographically disjunct population also occurs in the deserts and savanna of northeastern Africa.
Here, the species ranges from extreme southeast South Sudan, north Somalia, Ethiopia through all of Kenya (except coastal regions), Tanzania and Uganda.
Their distribution range extends along the Limpopo River valley into southern Mozambique and the eastern lowveld of South Africa.
The average weight of adult males of the nominate race in Namibia (20 specimens) was 11.3 kg (25 lb), while A. struthiunculus males were found to average 10.9 kg (24 lb).The nest is a shallow hollow in the earth, often disguised by nearby obstructive objects such as trees.The ventral plumage is more boldly colored, with white, black and buff.They are common in Botswana and Namibia, extending into southern Angola and marginally into southwestern Zambia.In Zimbabwe they are generally sparse but locally common, particularly on the central plateau.
The kori bustard (Ardeotis kori) is arguably the largest flying bird native to Africa.
