Cape Spurfowl

The Cape Spurfowl, or Cape Francolin, Pternistis capensis is a gamebird in the pheasant family Phasianidae. This francolin is endemic to the southwestern Cape of South Africa. The Cape Francolin is a bird of scrubby open areas, preferably close to running water. Its nest is a grass-lined scrape under a bush, and six to eight eggs are laid (but sometimes two females will lay in one nest).
