Artist's Description

Ground hornbills ((Bucorvus leadbeateri and BROMVOëL in Afrikaans) number among my favourite bird species. I enjoy it immensely to watch them – they look very pecurliar: impressive, even intimidating, but also comical. The photo here was taken in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
For those who don’t know them well – ground hornbills are particularly large birds, about the size of farm turkeys – but not as heavy. They reach a mass of about six kilograms. They can fly, and fairly well too, if necessary. Usually though they walk around with stiff-legged steps across the ground. They walk on their toes to boot, with the ‘sole’ of the foot lifted high off the ground. The result is a stately step, that gives an impression of justified arrogance.
Groot kommer heers oor die drastiese afname in die aantal Bromvoël-getalle. Daar word gereken dat die maksimum aantal bromvoëls in Suid-Afrika tussen 1500 en 2000 is.
