The Sichuan Partridge (Arborophila rufipectus) is a species of bird in the Phasianidae family. It is found only in China. Its natural habitat is temperate forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.
Recent work on the species in Laojunshan Nature Reserve found that the species occurred in secondary broadleaf forest but not in settlements, coniferous plantations or farmland. The same study found that birds typically occurred between 1400 and 1800m above sea level in the reserve, and mostly on gently sloping ground close to water sources.
The Sichuan Partridge is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
