Crested Wood Partridge
This is a dimorphic species, meaning that males and females differ in appearance. Males are bluish-purple with a red crest while females are pea green and have no crest.
Crested wood partidges spend most of their day scratching in the forest floor searching for insects and seeds. If a predator approaches the birds run for shelter or fly to low perches.
