Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This beautifully-patterned bird looks like a cross between a dove and a pheasant. Male is warm sandy-brown with bold brown, black, and white stripes. Female is much more densely and intricately striped all over her body. A species of inland plains, plateaus, and other open areas. Flocks to water after dusk, often giving bubbling clicks while doing so.
