The Partridge Nest

Two weeks ago while clearing out an overgrown area on the back of the property, I flushed a partridge along the field edge out of a cluster of tall grass, small raspberry bushes and twisted branches. Considering the time of year and fact that they small bird immediately began a fake display of being injured, I figured that there must be a nest nearby. A quick search and I was able to locate the small nest containing 6 eggs! This excited me for several reasons the primary being that partridge numbers on the property have been increasing dramatically in the last several years due to a few habitat projects I have been implementing. The secondary cause for my excitement was that I wanted to put a game camera near the nest to get some pictures. Below is a selection of a few of my favorites.
