A covey of Gray Partridge (Perdix perdix) huddle together under a tree to keep warm. A winter visitor to the Ottawa area, Gray Partridge can be found in small groups in urban and rural areas throughout the region. They prefer the cover of dense scrub and woodlands near open fields where they can hide from predators and wander into open areas to feed when the coast is clear.
