Crested Wood Partridge

This gamebird is in the pheasant family and thrives in the lowland rainforests of southeast Asia where it uses its feet to find fruit, seeds and insects to eat. What is interesting about this species is that it feeds its young beak to beak. The youngsters of other members of this family begins pecking for food off the ground right away.

Unfortunately, the logging industry is taking its toll on this species with habitat destruction and the bird is threatened with extinction in the near future. Only through early intervention through conservation efforts will this species survive.
