The Arabian Bustard is a magnificent bird which was a great priviledge to see. Its range is restricted to the Sahel and sub Saharan belt of Africa and it is really only within northern Ethiopia and Cameroon that birding trips have much of a chance of seeing it. We were lucky enough to find two of them on the dramatic drive from Ankober to Awash across the roadless Afar Plains. More

Arabian Bustard at a certain area of the Tihama plain. Yousuf had hired a local weeks ago to find out where the bustards were supposed to be. Unfortunately, this local was very unfair and cancelled the mission early in morning during our breakfast. We anayway went to the place where Yousuf had seen an Arabian Bustard a few weeks ago. With help from locals from several small villages we searched through the area for several hours, but with no luck. More

The Arabian bustard still occurs in the southern Arabian Peninsula and in northwest Africa, but otherwise this and the remaining bustard species are found only in Africa, mostly in the tropics. Within Africa there are two clear areas where different species have evolved: from the Zambezi southwest to the Cape and from the Nile to the Horn, with four species in the former and three in the latter.

instance, sub-Saharan farmers consider the Arabian bustard (Ardeotis arabs) a pest because it nibbles acacia saplings planted for the extraction of gum arabic, an ingredient in pharmaceuticals and soft drinks. Europe's great and little bustards feed on alfalfa much of the year, and leaves of other legumes such as vetch and clover are also featured on bustard menus. But farmers often plant these crops to infuse nitrogen into their soil rather than for harvesting. More
