|Family||Pheasants and Grouse|
|Habitat||Thick vegetation, brushy areas and tall grasslands; generally near water. Inhabits “mosaic” areas where forests and cultivated lands meet, but is not an interior forest bird. More closely associated with water than many other partridges.|
Seabirds rely on fish as their primary food source, but they often can’t find enough to eat.
