NO KEPT OR DOMESTIC BIRDS
> Common names are gamefowl or gamebirds, landfowl, gallinaceous birds or galliforms.
> This group has more than 250 living species, one or more of which are found in essentially every part of the world’s continents (except for the innermost deserts and perpetual ice).
> They are important as seed dispersers and predators in the ecosystems they inhabit.
> All are skilled runners that can fly only a few hundred feet when escaping danger. Males of most species are more colorful than the females. Males often have elaborate courtship behaviors that include strutting, fluffing of tail or head feathers, and vocal sounds.
> They are mainly non-migratory birds.
> These birds vary in size from the diminutive King Quail (Coturnix chinensis) at 12.5 cm (5 in) long and weighing 28–40 g (1–1.4 oz) to the largest extant galliform species, the North American Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo), which may weigh as much as 14 kg (30.5 lb) and may exceed 120 cm (47 in).
