Coqui Francolin

By Gray_ina
Thank you for c'c on the Vulture in flight - always appreciated.
We realise as far as game birds and raptors are concerned we've only touched the tip of the iceberg.
This Francolin is a new addition to the p/f and the male is the only Francolin in the region to have a plain buffy head with a contrasting darker crown. There are only one Francolin species smaller than this one in the region. Hope you like it - gray.

He's a perky looking fella, Gray, and merges in well with his surroundings. Very well captured. Carol
