ABout Crested Wood Partridge

CRESTED WOOD PARTRIDGES LIVE IN GROUPS OF UP TO 15 BIRDS. PARENTS WILL RAISE FOUR TO EIGHT CHICKS TOGETHER. IF THE BROOD IS LARGER, THE PARENTS WILL RAISE HALF OF THE GROUP SEPARATELY.

These birds are plump with a small head. Males have bluish-purple feathers as well as a large red crest on the head, which gives the species its name. Females have green feathers and lack a crest. The Crested Wood Partridge is in near threatened due to habitat loss of the tropical rain forests of Southeastern Asia.
