Secretary bird after a night of heavy rain

The secretary bird is a common sight in the Masai Mara, but one rarely seen after a night of heavy rain. The downpour had turned the dusty ground into a muddy quagmire, and the secretary bird was having trouble keeping its balance. Every few steps it would lose its footing and flail its wings to stay upright. It was a sorry sight, but I was glad to see it is still well. The heavy rain must have been a real ordeal for such a large bird.
