Crossoptilon auritum
 
It inhabits western and northern China on the Tibetan plateau to the snow line.
It was persecuted for a long time for its beautiful tail feathers that were very fashionable on the hats of western women.
This noisy and vocal bird is very savage. It runs very fast but nearly never flies. Its powerful beak enables it to glean food.
