“I Taw I taw a Putty Tat”… Red-billed Spurfowl….

I came upon these youngsters scouting around in the grass, they seemed unaware of me as I crept closer…. and then….


“Whoooo what the hell is that ?? Oh it’s only a bulldog…” … “But let me get some height and have another look.”


“Yep a bulldog” …. (What the hell are they? Then I saw the parent and realised they were Juvies)


“Red-billed Spurfowl”… she moved closer to make my ID easier….


“This Bulldog seems more interested in Mom… let me strut my stuff….”


“Lets give him a pose…. a close-up… and now PUSH OFF so we can eat !!….”


“Let me close my eyes and pretend he’s not there….”


The red-billed spurfowl (Pternistis adspersus), also known as the red-billed francolin, is found in Angola, Botswana, Namibia, North West of South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Red billed Spurfowl… a Photo set that speaks for itself…
