A Partridge in a Pear Tree!

In the winter months I move the birdfeeders to the back deck so I can enjoy the community of visitors. About three dozen resident house sparrows have been sharing the bounty this past week. Among the new faces (beaks) we've seen ... mourning doves, juncos, finches, chickadees, speckled starlings and a regular winter visitor, the flickertail woodpecker who along with the starlings prefers the suet cakes. We've seen everything but a partridge in a pear tree but we are visited regularly by a dozen or so quail!
