Chances are pretty good he's talking about grouse, but you raise a good point. Everyone I know, and for as long as I can remember has always called them partridge. Why is it that most people around here call them partridge instead of their proper name? How did that come to be?

Because that's the way it's worded in the song...who ever heard....my true love gave to me......two turtle doves and a grouse innnnn a treeeeeeeee :P

All my young life while hunting with others, I was always told they were partridge.....I still call em that today. :rolleyes: ...Honestly tho, When I hear grouse...I think of the prairies((sharp tailed grouse)...who knows...
maybe it has something to do with the Hungarian partridge that used to be here....you know....getting a couple of each on an outing and just calling them all "partridge"...no differentiating between the two
