Ungulate ecosystems (Olumpus mt.) (Greece) diorama

Photo of a Rock Partridge, Alectoris graeca, the partridge of the Balkans, Italy and the southern Alps. It prefers solitary mountainous areas, cliff edges that face southwards, croplands located in open forests and bush lands. It is difficult to distinguish the rock patridge from the island one, but it sings differently.
