And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

Red Junglefowl - Our Original Chicken Ancestor

This is video of some wild male and female Red Junglefowl coming in from the forest at Baan Song Nok in Thailand. The males are absolutely stunning with fantastic colours!
All I can say is they look great and thanks for the eggs!

Great video! You seem to have a great time birding in Thailand. Also nice to hear that your guide is Peter!

Such handsome birds with those jewel-like colors.
