Chunky medium-sized gamebird of far eastern Russia. Both sexes are dark brown with white-spotted underparts. Male is heftier and thicker-necked, with a black throat bordered by white. Also note bright red patch of skin above each eye. Female is patchy brown with a more peaked head. Inhabits well-shaded coniferous and mixed forests, where it forages on the ground and in trees. Male gives odd clicks and claps during display.
