Species Description
The Crested Partridge ranges from the Malaysian peninsula to Borneo and Sumatra, and is found in tropical lowland evergreen forests. The Crested Partridge is recognizable by its vivid red legs and circle of red skin around the eyes of both sexes, while the male also has a tall red crest on its head. Like most gamebirds, it forages on the ground for fruit, small lizards, insects and seeds; however, the young are fed by their parents, which is unusual for Galliformes. The Crested Partridge is known to associate with wild pigs, feeding on discarded fruits that are normally too large for it to tackle.
