PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD China

A Chinese Bamboo-partridge in a makeshift cage on a farm in Yangshuo County of Guangxi Province, southern China. The underparts are golden-rufous, with some elongated black spots on the sides, that run over the back which is otherwise brownish-grey. Its face and throat are also golden-rufous, whilst the crown, neck and breast are ashy grey.

 

In Manadarin, it is known as huī xiōng zhú jī, which literally translates as ‘ash-breasted bamboo chicken’. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
