CRESTED WOOD PARTRIDGE

Rollulus rouloul


Range:
Burma, Thailand, Malaysia

The Crested Wood Partridge is also known as Roul-roul Partridge. Males are metallic green in color with a tall, bright red crest and red legs. Females are marginally smaller than males and have green feathers on their bodies, brown wings, and a dark, slate-colored head. The females have no crest. Logging has disturbed the Crested Wood Partridge’s natural habitat, making this bird near threatened. However, being adaptable birds, they have survived well considering the steady destruction of their habitat. They live in groups of 10-15 on the forest floor.
