Scientific Name: Francolinus
There are approximately 40 species of Francolins, with most native to Africa. We have a selection of taxidermy mounts of several of these species. All vary in the colors of plumage. The African Francolin, also known as the Cape Spurfowl, or Cape Francolin are game birds of the pheasant family found in South African, but have been introduced in the state of Hawaii, with numbers in Florida and Louisiana. Francolin’s are plump-bodied birds with thick necks and moderately long legs, and have rounded, rather short wings and a hooked beak. Males have a sharp spur on the back of the legs for fighting.
