Jungle Fowl

Junglefowl are a group of four living pheasant species which occur in India, Sri Lanka and south east Asia.

These large birds have a colorful male plumage, but they are usually well hidden in dense vegetation.

The female alone incubates the eggs and raises the young.

The junglefowl are seed-eaters, but insects are also taken, particularly by the young birds.

The Red Junglefowl is believed to be the domesticated chicken.
