Book cover image 3

Once upon a time the partridge lived in all fields of our region.  Today it has become rare.  What has caused the drastic decline?  What does the partridge need to return in greater numbers to our landscape? How does this interesting bird live?  Pheasants too have an interesting story:  Once it arrived in our lands from Asia this colorful fowl became a favourite of hunters.  Today - with declining populations - knowledge about the pheasant is increasingly being lost.  This reference book has lots of information on partridges and pheasants.

96 pages. About 60 colour photos, numerous black and white drawings by Hubert Zeiler.
