Stalking the Savannah: Birds that Choose Not to Fly

The endless savannah stretching to the horizon in southwestern Kenya is home to several bird species that can fly but mostly don't. With their long legs, secretary birds find insects and reptiles hiding in the grass. They even hunt for venomous snakes. Ground hornbills use their strong bills to dig for food. These birds spend most of the day on the ground, flying to the treetops only to sleep or raise their young. Many mysteries behind the peculiar habits and intriguing behavior of these sauntering savannah dwellers are revealed in this fascinating program.
