The Barbary partridge has its main native range in North Africa, and is also native to Gibraltar and the Canary Islands (Alectoris barbara ssp. koenigi). It has been introduced to continental Portugal and Madeira, though there are no recent records of this species on the latter islands. It is also present in Sardinia.
The Barbary partridge is a rotund bird, with a grey-brown back, grey breast and buff belly. The face is light grey with a broad reddish-brown gorget. It has rufous-streaked white flanks and red legs. When disturbed, it prefers to run rather than fly, but if necessary it flies a short distance on rounded wings.
It is closely related to its western European equivalent, the red-legged partridge. It is similar to the red-legged partridge, but it has a different head and neck pattern. The song is a noisy tre-tre-tre-tre-tre-cheeche-tre-tre-tre.
Our theme this Christmas at work, was Partridge in a Pear Tree. I was so impressed when I saw these adorable Pennies. I used them to seal Christmas card envelopes and added them to bow centers on gifts. Everyone will have a lovely keepsake which is also real money. They were packaged well, and arrived in record time for our holiday festivities.
Really nice set of coins from Gibraltar, arrived quickly, and a helpful, friendly seller.
Excellent, fast shipping - thank you
Very nice. I'm happy w/ my purchase.
Very nice. I'm using these for what most would consider a weird art (or craft) project, but they work great for me. Thanks!
