My first, IMHO, reasonably decent bird shot. My bird book says it's a Spotted Thick-knee.

Taken at the Umgeni Bird Park in Durban, South Africa. The park got a last minute reprieve from closure last year and they're busy getting it back to its former glory.

D5100, 55-200 kit lens @ 200mm, ISO 100, f5.6 @ 1/250

A bit of a crop, pulled out some shadow detail and sharpened a bit in Lightroom.
