Schlegel's Francolin

(Francolinus schlegelii)
Certainly one of the best birds of the trip. A stunningly attractive francolin which has a restricted range being found in grassland areas within well wooded savannas. Local and uncommon. This bird gave us prolonged views as it foraged around in the dry grass seemingly unconcerned by our presence. Photographed at Ngaoundaba Ranch.
