Grey Francolin

The Grey Francolin, which was formerly also known as the Grey Partridge, are found in open cultivated lands and drier parts of South Asia. Locally in Gujarat, it is commonly known as Teetar and is derived on their loud repeated “Ka-tee-tar-tee-tar” calls. Grey Francolin is a weak flyer but a fast runner and prefers to run when approached or disturbed.
