Bambusicola is a genus of bird in the Phasianidae family.

It contains the following species:

Mountain Bamboo Partridge, Bambusicola fytchii
Chinese Bamboo Partridge, Bambusicola thoracicus

Fossil remains of a bamboo partridge have been found in Late Miocene rocks in China. Thus, like many other phasianid genera the Bambusicola lineage dates back more than 5 million years.
