Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Common relative of the domestic chicken. Endemic to peninsular India where it occurs in deciduous and evergreen forest. Males are grayish with golden markings on the wings, whitish spotting around the neck, a long glossy-black tail, pinkish feet. Red comb and wattle are smaller than the widespread Red Junglefowl. Females are rather plain, lacking the long tail, comb and wattle; yellowish legs and bold white spotting on underparts separate them from similar looking female Red Junglefowl. Quite noisy, their “kuk-ku-kuwuk-ku” calls are heard almost year-round.
