What to Know About Crested Frankolin in Uganda?

The crested francolin is a common species of francolin found in large parts of sub-Saharan Africa. It reaches an average length between 30-35 cm.

It has a cryptically patterned plumage perfect for camouflage. Its most distinctive features are the clear white eye stripe contrasting with the dark crown, the white throat and how it often cocks its tail.

Females and juveniles are a bit duller and lack the spur found on the legs of males.
