Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large modestly-colored terrestrial bird of open woodlands, scrublands, and meadows in alpine areas. Brown overall with a peaked head, chestnut throat, and bright red skin around the eye. Body intricately patterned, with fine black spotting on breast and white edging on wings and flanks. Similar Szechenyi’s Partridge does not overlap in range. Song is a messy cacophony of twanging, nasal, and slurred notes.
