Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Although its loud, hoarse calls can often be heard echoing in the high mountain slopes it calls home, this large game bird can often prove difficult to see. Extremely well-camouflaged on rocky slopes and in boulder fields. Gray head is marked with a comma-shaped white brow and a bright orange patch of skin behind the eye. Back is brown with thick black-and-white striping and the underparts are snowy-white with thin black stripes.
