Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large and brownish francolin with yellow-orange legs, bill, and bare skin around the eyes. Also note the heavily striped and spotted neck and underparts and the strong facial pattern. Found in savanna and grassland habitats at middle elevations. Usually in pairs or small groups. The common vocalization is a series of several rough “kreek” calls. Similar in size, shape, and overall coloration to Double-spurred and Clapperton’s Francolins, but separated by the yellow-orange bare parts.
