Partridges are medium-sized non-migratory game birds. A partridge is intermediate between the larger pheasants and the smaller quail bird. They are sometimes grouped in the Perdicinae subfamily of the Phasianidae.
Partridges can be found nesting on the ground on agricultural land.
The grey and the red-legged partridge are popular game birds. They are mentioned in the first verse of the Christmas carol, “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.
When cooked partridges have a moist texture and mild flavour. These make a good introduction to English Game Meat for those people trying it for the first time.
