The Arabian Red-legged Partridge in North Yemen.
The Arabian Red-legged Partridge Alectoris melanocephala is the largest and most morphologically distinct of the world's seven species of Alectoris partridge. It is endemic to the south-west corner of the Arabian peninsula and Oman. This paper describes the observations collected on the species by the OSME Expedition to North Yemen in autumn 1985 (see Rands et al. 1987), and considers them in the light of previously published material.
