Finally, a good picture

After months of tracking these creatures down and listening to their calls, finally, I’m rewarded with this picture!

Is this the Red Jungle Fowl?

This bird has very similar morphology to the Red Jungle Fowl and does possess the morphological features of the Red Jungle Fowl. In particular, the white ear patch and white rump with grey legs. However, whether this is a hybrid between the domestic chicken and the Red Jungle Fowl, DNA testing needs to be done, which unfortunately is not within the scope of my mini UROPS project.

I was really excited to see this picture! In fact, I was jumping and screaming, as my family members can testify. Truly, a sweet fruit after months of being the “doggie at the window”, staring forlornly at the patch of greenery, hoping to get a glimpse of it.
