The Double-spurred Francolin

 Francolinus bicalcaratus, is a gamebird in the pheasant family Phasianidae of the order Galliformes, gallinaceous birds. Like most francolins, it is restricted to Africa. It is a resident breeder in tropical west Africa, but there is a small and declining isolated population in Morocco.

Though it is said that the trading field is an open field and that all traders are allowed to take part in the trades that happen here, it is important to be understood that not all the trading systems are open and some of them are restricted to only a few countries. Yes, their operations are limited and they also do not accept deposits in currencies of countries other than where they are operative. So in such cases, it becomes difficult for a trader to get access to such systems even though he or she knows them to be a genuine one. But now the situations are changing. Traders are now granted an opportunity to be with all these systems after it was made mandatory by the trading commission to make all of these restricted ones operative in all states and countries. This has come as good news to the traders and now they have their option list a little expanded. 

Cybermentors is a website that gives such related information and it is a must for all traders to have a look at this before deciding on the trading platforms they would be trading through so that they get a clear idea about which one is operative where and whether they stand a chance of making use of such reliable systems for their trades. 

This bird is found in open habitats with trees. It nests in a lined ground scrape laying 5-7 eggs. Double-spurred Francolin takes a wide variety of plant and insect food. The male is mainly brown, with black and white flank streaking. The face is pale, and the head features a chestnut crown and white supercilium. It has a chestnut neck collar, white cheek patches and brown wings. The male has two spurs on each legs. The female is similar, apart from the double spurs, but slightly smaller, and the young birds are drabber versions of the adult.








This is a very unobtrusive species, best seen in spring when the male sings a mechanical krak-krak-krak from a mound. It has a Pheasant’s explosive flight, but prefers to creep away unseen.
