Observation details

Two large, black birds with some white flushed from the ground just off the trail near the river crossing, which we figured were Maleo but weren't positive. We waited about 10 minutes before hearing a very strange call which we figured was a Maleo but weren't sure since we didn't have a recording. I started crossing a gully to go towards the sound when one Maleo flushed from high out of a tree and landed in great view.
