Displaying of Great Bustard in Austria - video 1/3

Displaying Great Bustard 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 shot by Gerhard Rotheneder in the period of the Life+ Project Great Bustard (2014).
