Partridge

The partridge are birds in the pheasant family, Phasianidae. They are a non-migratory Old World group.

These are medium-sized birds, essentially in the middle ground between the large pheasants and the small quails. The partridges are ground-nesting seed-eaters. Many species are hunted for food, as they are at the heart of many excellent gamebird recipes.

Partridges commonly hunted and found in the vast upland areas of North America include:
  • Grey Partridge (also known as the Hungarian Partridge, or "hun," they are a European import, now resident in parts of North America).
     
  • Chukar Partridge (from southeastern Europe and Asia, living in North America for just over 100 years now).
