Most people prefer to see the famous and big animals of Africa, probably that was reason few people paid attention in the previous image. Here another small animal we found in the areas near the edge of Etosha Salt Pan. Despite looking small it is a big bird. I used lots of my zoom to get it and despite this quality of image isn't so nice.
A maioria das pessoas prefere admirar os animais mais famosos e grandes da África, deve ser esse o motivo pelo qual o animal apresentado ondem não atraiu muito interesse. Temos aqui uma ave que vimos no nosso passeio às margens da grande planície salina de Etosha. Mesmo parecendo pequeno na foto, o animal é bem grande.

Hi Jorge, Nice spotted bird scenery with details and clarity although it looks bit flat because of the colour of the environment.....not much colour contrasts. The FG branches gives some sense of depth to the composition. Nice POV too. Best regards

It is a desert bird, jorger, with the perfect camouflage colors of the feathers.
Big eyes and beak, an indicative of a prey hunting specie. Did noy found a name on the web.

Hi Jorge. I am pretty sure that this is the Spotted Thick-knee that can be seen in open country including fields and parks. It is a very good photo which shows the bird in its habitat and how well camouflaged it can be. Regards. Klaudio.

Jorge, that bird species is adaptated to both arid and rocky areas, I note its mimetism hidden in a cavity where it built its nest
