If you like birds that make some cool sounds and calls- Erckel's have some awesome calls.
What pretty birds! I have never heard of them before. Are they pheasants?
Quote:Francolins are part of the Phasianidae family, but are not true pheasants. The Phasianidae family includes Pheasants, quail, junglefowl, partridge, monals & peafowl.
I don't consider them pheasants.
do they act like more like pheasants or quail?
Quote:I would say probably more like Quail.
Very cool, I have only seen them once of twice. I would consider them more comparable to a large partridge but francolin are deffinatly their own however rare they maybe.
