Artist's Description

The Crested Francolin (Dendroperdix sephaena) is a species of bird in the Phasianidae family. It is found in Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Can be distinguished from other francolins by the broad white eye-stripe contrasting with the dark head, combined with the white throat. Its habit of cocking its tail is also a useful distinguishing feature. (Wikipedia)
I saw this one at Dikhololo in Northwest, South Africa.
