SPECIES INFO

Philby's Partridge (Alectoris philbyi), is a relative of the chukar, red-legged partridge and barbary partridges native to southwestern Arabia and northern Yemen. Although similar in appearance to other Alectoris species, Philby's Partridge can be distinguished by its black cheeks and throat.

The name commemorates the British explorer St. John Philby.
