It is a crowned or crested crane, depending where in the world you are I think.

I believe its called an East African Crested Crane to give it its full title, although there appears to be a couple of variation on this.

If you get another chance to photograph it, take a picture of just its head (If it stays still long enough!). It is a really unusual bird and one of my favourites. I have a friend (John Wellman!) who calls it a "Punk Duck!!!". He is not an authority on Wildlife! (and neither am I).

Just a small point, you need commas between your tags (and not spaces!). Other websites insist on spaces (Flickr for example!)
