Description

Latin Name: Alectoris graeca  
Distribution: Asia and Europe  
 
The Rock Partridge prefers dry countryside areas to live and mate in. These birds will eat just about any insect or seed that it comes across. In its native habitat of Asia and Europe it is hunted extensively. Since the partridge does not fly through the air the Rock Partridge makes its nest on the ground. After mating season the female will lay anywhere from 4 to 20 eggs in this nest.
