Partridge black

Snow Partridge is a gamebird in the pheasant family. It is the only species within its genus. The Snow Partridge is found is small groups, usually about 6 to 8 but up to 30 during the non-breeding season. When flushed, they usually fly up before scattering away with noisy wing beats. The flight is rapid and stirring. It has a habit of sunning itself on rocks during the midday.

The owner of this blog, snowpartridge, also enjoys sun during the midday. As homo sapiens snowpartridge is likewise the only surviving species within its genus. Only flies in an airplane and turns slightly red when flushed. Prefers small groups. Likes photographing.
