Looks like a partridge of some sort- found in our backyard chilling by the pool. Rooster for comparison in the third picture!

Description

At first looked like a large quail but closer observation revealed red eyes, red bill, red legs, rufus underparts, buff breast, pinkish shoulders, grey back, speckled collar, barred wings.
I think it may have been visiting my garden for some time, but until today I may have been mistaking it for a Malaysian dove, as these birds are not uncommon in this area, and look somewhat similar when lurking under flax plants.
This bird is unafraid, watches me, and when I go out to look at it has more than once come towards a me - could it have escaped from captivity?
