MacQueen collected natural history specimens in the Himalayas and northwest India. While a major of the 45th, MacQueen presented a specimen of a bustard species he had shot to the British Museum (Natural History) and in 1832 the bird was named for him as the MacQueen's bustard, Chlamydotis macqueenii, by J. E. Gray.
