Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Well-camouflaged for forested areas. Square tail with dark tip. Typically seen as they flush from forest floor, exploding into the air and then gliding down towards the next hiding place. Varies in plumage from cold gray to rich rufous. Males beat wings against their chest to produce distinctive low-pitched drumming sound.
