Fun Animal Facts
Bamboo partridge spend most of their time on the ground. When threatened they generally run away or fly a short distance in short, strong bursts. Their voice is a loud ringing cackle that repeats two notes over and over. A bamboo partridge pair often engage in duets, with male calling first and the female answering.
