(Note from Birdforum)

Temminck's Tragopan (M)


64cm. Red and orange, white-spotted plumage, black bill, pink legs, bare blue facial skin, inflatable dark-blue lappet and horns. The female is a white-spotted brown bird with blue circular eye skin.


Northeast India, northwest Vietnam, Tibet northern provinces of China, and northern Burma




The diet includes berries, grass, plants, shoots, fruits and insects.

They take over an abandoned nest and the female lines it with leaves and twigs. 3-4 eggs are laid and are incubated by the female for 28-30 days. The young develop very quickly and are able to fly just days after hatching.
