Barbary Partridge

This colorful member of the partridge family finds its home in the dry, open hill country of North Africa, Gibralter, and the Canary Islands. Sexes are similar in color, males being slightly larger and have small spurs. As with other partridges, when disturbed, it prefers to run rather than fly. Breeding begins in early March, hens lay from 10 to 16 eggs, nest is a scantily lined scrape in the ground. There are 6 recognized subspecies, all similar in color.

Tying with Barbary Partridge Feathers

Although similar to to a Chukar, this bird has far more color and delicate patterns.

The barring on the flank feathers is finer, the breast and shoulders have more pastel coloring, and most noticable is the patterning on the head and neck.

This guy might be missing a few tail and wing feathers, but other than that, he is in good feather - nice color and almost no wear on the feather tips.
