Displaying of Great Bustard in Austria - video 2/3

Displaying Great Bustard (Otis tarda) in Austria. The spectacular display is characteristic for Great Bustards. In a matter of seconds dis-playing males twist and turn their brownish grey wings and tail, in order to showcase the white underwing and undertail coverts as well as other white tracts of plumage that are normally hidden below the camouflage upperparts.

Video by Gerhard Rotheneder within the frame work of the Life+ Project Great Bustard (2014).
