Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A brightly-colored game bird with an intricate head pattern and a body shaped like a football. Brick-red on the crown serves to distinguish the male from the similar Rufous-throated Partridge, while male Hill Partridge also lacks orange on the throat. Female is not as distinctive as the male, lacking his white chest band and brick-red crown, but does have orange on the throat, though less than in Rufous-throated. Moves around in convoys through dense vegetation in mid- to high-altitude forests.
