1. Bird(Common Noun-Common) Partridges are birds in the pheasant family, Phasianidae. They are a non-migratory Old World group. These are medium-sized birds, intermediate between the larger pheasants and the smaller quails. Partridges are native to Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Partridges are ground-nesting seed-eaters. There are two types of partridge commonly found in North America as game birds - the chukar partridge and the gray partridge. The gray partridge is more commonly found in deciduous forests. The gray partridge has a less charismatic appearance than the chukar partridge. Partridges are 10-14 inches long and weigh less than one pound. They are a favorite game bird for many hunters.
