Temminck’s Tragopan

Tragopan temminckii

Tragopans belong to the same family of birds as pheasants. They are one of five tragopan species all found in Asia.



Size: 58 – 64cm
Weight: 900 – 1440g



They live in mountain forests, spending the colder winters at low altitudes and moving up the mountains during the summer.



They mainly feed on leaves, buds, berries, fruit and a small number of insects.



Nests are built in trees or abandoned crows nests are used. The hen (female) incubates the eggs alone for 26 days. The chicks begin fluttering between branches as early as 48 hours old!



The temminck’s tragopan is not classed as endangered as the population has a large range. However, other species of tragopan, such as the western tragopan, are threatened by habitat loss due to deforestation and agriculture.
