This is an order / clade of heavy-bodied ground-feeding birds. It includes turkey, grouse, chicken, quail, ptarmigan, partridge and pheasant. There are around 290 species. All are skilled runners that can fly only a few hundred feet when escaping danger. Most do not migrate. Males often have elaborate courtship behaviors that include strutting, fluffing of tail or head feathers, and vocal sounds. They are mainly non-migratory. Many species are raised as game birds by humans for their meat and eggs. Other are the target of recreational hunting. This has led to their common names of gamefowl and gamebirds. They are also called land fowl to distinguish them from ducks, geese and other water fowl.
