Red-throated Spurfowl

Red-throated Spurfowl: Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — A common bird of the grasslands of Uganda, and and grassland in Africa south of the Sahara, the Red-throated Spurfowl is a handsome bird, even with its head on backwards 🙂 Note the wicked looking spur from which it gets its family name. It is also sometimes known as the Red-throated Francolin, though in general terms the Francolins and Spurfowls have very different looks and behaviours…and this is certainly a typical spurfowl.
