Bar-backed Partridge

This is my first lifer of the Partridge species (Arborophila brunneopectus 28 cm). I managed to photograph it at the Kaeng Krachan National Park in Thailand. The photos were captured using the Canon Eos 1 D mk4 with EF 800 Is lens.





Thanks for viewing.

I was so excited when I saw it came out of the forest edge. We had to stay quiet in our blind, it was very alert to human activities.

Hi Kiah,
This is amazing. Your patience has rewarded you with this incredible shots right under the canopy of the forest.
Well done.
