The yellow-necked spurfowl is a northeast African endemic. Its range partially overlaps that of the grey-breasted spurfowl with whom it may hybridise. All of these photos and videos were taken in Tarangire NP. The upper video shows a group preening. The second video is of 2 males fighting, courtesy of Ethan Kinsey. The slideshow includes photos of chicks, juveniles and immatures; click the photo above to see it.
