The painted spurfowl is one of these striking birds. They put on a charismatic multi-colored coat from emerald green to chestnut and russet brown. Noticeably, there are black and white spots beautifully flecked all over its body, making these creatures more conspicuous.

Like many other bird species, male and female painted spurfowls have distinctive features. The female wears a duller coat with a rufous brow and ear coverts. These birds also lack white spots on the body.

The unique painted spurfowl is a member of the pheasant family.

It’s known for its special harsh. When this spurfowl is flushed, it cackles “kuk-kuk-kuk-kukaak.”

They distribute in some parts of the Aravalli ranges in Rajasthan, the hills of central India, and the rocky hills and dry forested areas of southern India. These birds can also be found in the Nallmalai region in the Andra Pradesh Eastern Ghats.

This spurfowl’s main diets are berries, insects, and flowers.

During the breeding season (from January to August), the female painted spurfowl builds her nest in a shallow scrape on the ground. This nest is lined with leaves to make it softer and warmer.

Female birds then lay 3-5 eggs in their nest and incubate them. Male birds will join the females in feeding and taking care of the hatchlings until fully fledged.
