These photos of the Udzungwa partridge are from the Udzungwa Ndundulu forest at 1880 m. on Dec. 30, 2006, courtesy of Dr. Louis A. Hansen. The whole bird photo is an adult followed by an adult male head and then an immature head. Dr. Hansen notes: "the adults have a bright coral-coloured bill and a black forehead, most pronounced in the males. Immatures come in all possible variations according to age; in general, they have a dark bill which progresses to orange and finally coral red; the immature plumage is also very variable and so the forehead has not yet become fully black."
