    A great shot, but it is not the Chestnut-breasted Partridge (Arborophila mandellii), although it has a chestnut breast, it's a male Bornean Partridge (Arborophila hyperythra). Really the best picture I've ever saw of this rare species. Thanks, Rudi

    Comment by 'cerylerudis' in media 'Can anyone help me identify this?'

    I think, we cant't see any mottling, cause the distance. But the head-pattern looks like Green PG (Dark cap, down to the eyes). The male Cotton PG has a nearly white face and just the top of ist head is dark, as we can see in Ken's yesterdays fantastic shot, the female shows a dark stripe...
