Heavy birds that forage mostly by walking through grassy areas. This species prefers high altitude moorlands and elfin forests. Because these birds are hunted they are scarce and much more wary outside of protected areas. Also called spurfowl because adult males possess sharp spurs on their feet. They feed especially on seeds of sedges and grasses. Fruit and insects are also eaten.
