Home / Francolin & Partridge 23

Within the family Phasianidae, Francolins, Partridge and Old World Quail (covered on the quail section here at gbwf.org) comprise the subfamily Perdicinae. This large subfamily consists of over 100 species, these short-tailed galliformes inhabit a variety of habitats from the high mountains of the Himalayas and the savannahs of Africa to the dense rainforests of southeast Asia. There are no species of this subfamily native to North America, however, the Chukar and Grey (Hungarian) Partridge have been introduced and now have well established breeding populations.
