Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly common in farmland, grassy fields, and open heathland. Seen mainly as pairs and small groups, often along the edges of fields. Plumage ornate and handsome, with red bill, white throat, black streaked necklace, boldly barred flanks, and buffy belly. Other similar species (such as Chukar) do not overlap in wild range, but can escape from collections or be introduced for hunting; all lack the diagnostic black-streaked necklace of Red-legged.
