Sand Partridge (Ammoperdix heyi)
…a species of Old World partridge (Perdicinae) which occurs from Egypt and Israel east to the south Arabian Peninsula. In southeast Turkey and east to Pakistan A. heyi is replaced by its similar relative A. griseogularis (the see-see partridge). Sand partridges are resident breeders in dry, open and hilly countryside, where they will forage for a wide variety of seeds and plant matter. They are also occasionally know to take insects as well.
