5 Partridge in the yard.
Sounds a lot like a CSNY song, but these little guys have taken up residence in the front yard. They are skittish and fly off and about willy nilly if they are startled, but they are extremely social and enjoy moving about as a group.
They appear to be grey partridge and for the longest time, I have called them grouse. No wonder they always looked at me funny.
They do love to hide under the bushes and travel in this little group of five.
