Ammoperdix (sand partridge and see-see partridge)

Wikipedia Abstract

Ammoperdix is a small genus in the pheasant family Phasianidae of the order Galliformes. It contains two similar species: \n* See-see partridge, Ammoperdix griseogularis \n* Sand partridge, Ammoperdix heyi The see-see partridge occurs in southwest Asia, and the sand partridge in Egypt and the Middle East. Both are resident breeders in dry, open country, often in hill areas. When disturbed, Ammoperdix partridges prefer to run rather than take to the air, but if necessary they will fly a short distance on rounded wings.
