The bearded wood partridge (Dendrortyx barbatus) is a species of bird in the Odontophoridae family. It is medium-sized with a long tail. It is distributed in the temperate forests of the Sierra Madre Oriental (SMO) mountain range in Mexico. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and plantations. The Santo Domingo River in northern Oaxaca and western slope of the Sierra Madre Oriental, act as a biogeographic barriers and mark the distribution limits between these species. It is threatened by habitat loss. Defining its national risk category requires further knowledge of their current distribution range.
