Partridges [Perdicinae] are birds in the pheasant family. 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 and non-migratory. Junglefowl [Gallus] are the four living species of bird, which occur in India, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia and Indonesia. These are large birds, with colorful male plumage, but are nevertheless difficult to see in the dense vegetation they inhabit.
