Snow Mountain Quail

Anurophasis monorthonyx van Oort, 1910

The Snow Mountain quail, is a large, approximately 28 cm (11 in) long, dark brown quail of alpine grasslands. It was formerly considered the only member of the genus Anurophasis, but phylogenetic analysis places it as the sister species to the brown quail in the genus Synoicus. It has a brown plumage, a horn-coloured bill, yellow legs and a brown iris. The underparts of the female are whitish and more heavily black barred than in the male. Source: Wikipedia
