BLACK FRANCOLIN

Also know as “Kaala Teetar”. Strikingly patterned male is unmistakable with his jet-black face and breast, white cheek patch, dark rust-brown collar, and bright white spots. Occurs in dry grasslands, agricultural land, and weedy fields. Shyer than other franeolins; more often heard than seen. Usually found solitary or in pairs.
