    J. Gould Elephant Folio Print: Galloperdix Spadiceus. This print features the Rufous Spur-Fowl, native to the southern part of the Himalayas, and to the extreme southern point of the Indian peninsula. The text that accompanies the print reads in part, "…Colonel Sykes, who found it very common in the thick brushwood of the Ghauts, had examples of both sexes alive in his possession for some time, and states that 'they are excellent eating. The male has a harsh call of three syllables, Kot-kut-ree, whence the Mahratta name. The female in confinement uttered little notes like the twittering of a chicken.'…" The print itself features a male and female seated upon a wooden log of a limb which is near some vegetation.
