Gray Partridges In The Rain

I need a break from flood photos.  Let's get back to the beloved birds.

A Gray Partridge (Perdix perdix) pair were feeding on a newly mowed acreage lawn yesterday morning.  I expect a good many nesting attempts for game birds has failed as it has for most of the waterfowl in the area.

I do have a nice goose story.  My friends have been watching a Canada Goose nest in the valley below their place.  Twice the nest has been in water, and we all thought the eggs were doomed.  However, three little goslings hatched out yesterday.  Yay
