Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

An odd, thickset terrestrial bird with an unusual pair of upswept white plumes (“‘ears”) emerging from below a blood-red face. Overall gray-brown, with frosty gray-white rump and dark-tipped tail. Usually found foraging in brushy clearings and forest edges; where habituated to human presence and fed, regularly visits monastery and estate grounds. The most northerly and only eared-pheasant in its range.
