Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Ornate partridge of east Himalayan foothill forests. Favors north- and west-facing slopes, often in areas with dense bamboo stands. Note black-and-white “necklace” and dark rusty-red head and chest. Like many other Arborophila partridges, can be elusive and difficult to see in the gloom of the forest floor; instead, listen for its song, a far-carrying slow series of rising whistles or short whistled phrases, often slightly burry.
