Numida meleagris | helmeted guineafowl (domestic type)


The helmeted guineafowl is a native to Africa, but has been domesticated and travelled the word for their delicious meat. In Hawaiʻi, they were released, and now make a home for themselves in open urban fields near ponds and wetlands. A plump bird, they have a large body and small head, about 22 inches in length. Their body feathers are gray-black with white speckles, but their head in naked, showing off pink and blue skin.
