This South African bird may grow to nearly four feet tall. They feed primarily on frogs, reptiles, and insects in their native habitat. They inhabit marhses and moist grasslands. They are found in large flocks during non-breeding season. During the breeding season, pairs often engage in energetic dancing and head bobbing.
