The Buff-crested Bustard is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Buff-crested bustards are small in size, ranging from 1.5-2 pounds and can reach 16-20 inches tall. They are cryptically colored to help them blend into their environment. They also are sexually dimorphic. Male buff-crested bustards have an olive colored crown, a black stripe down the front of the neck, and a black chest and belly. The upper feathers contain light orange-brown coloration. The females have brown heads, a much reduced crest, and are buff colored in the throat, chin, and breast area. More

This buff-crested bustard is about 2 months old, and almost fully grown. From about 10 days or so they look like miniature versions bustards, it's painfully adorable. Buff-crested bustards also have a nasty habit of starting to attack their mom's when they reach maturity. This one started doing that at an age where he couldn't feed himself, but thankfully stopped a day or so later. More
