Green Jungle Fowl

Green jungle fowl (Gallus varius), are an exotic and shy relative of the domestic chicken and are endemic to Indonesia. While exploring some of the amazing country of remote West Flores this year, we were lucky enough to capture a sighting of these elusive birds grubbing for food along the coastline.

We used a remote camera and were lucking to capture some still images of the pair and also an interesting video clip of the male looking very nervous and then suddenly darting into the underbrush. Seconds later a white-bellied fish-eagle (Heliaeetusleucogaster) can be seen landing in the background.
