I went looking for a partridge in a pear tree. I found a pear tree, don’t know what kind, and partridges, but no partridge in a tree. I think partridges walk on the ground and if they fly, it doesn’t seem to be high up in the air.
In my opinion, they made it up for the holiday song.
This is the pear tree (unknown).
Partridges are related to pheasants and peafowls. An example of a peafowl is a peacock. I’m sure I’ll find a connection to something in nature and show pictrures of the other birds.
