Reference: Partridge


Two kinds of partridge abound in Palestine. The chukar or rock partridge (Caccabis chukar) is the commonest of game birds. Its cry may be heard all over the land, and large coveys may be encountered in the autumn. It is distinguished by its red legs. It is excellent eating. Hey's sand partridge (Ammoperdix heyi) occurs in enormous numbers around the Dead Sea. It is probably the partridge referred to in Isa 26:20 : its short flights from place to place when hunted; Its hiding, trusting to its invisibility on account of its colour being so like the environment; its quick run from danger before taking to wing; and its final capture when too wearied to fly
