I have a 20 gauge shotgun pump action and I always put in two shells when I am preparing to shoot. Rejean spotted the bird for me and I loaded up and quietly approached to find out where the bird was - he was to the left. I slowly moved forward a bit to try and see him Then a bird came out from the right and I shot it. Immediately another bird came out from the right and started across the trail. I quickly ejected the spent shell and then shot the other one. I wasn't too sure I got the second one but I did!!!! Wow!! First time that has ever happened. I was so excited I forgot to get a picture of those two birds.
I now have a good supply of partridge in the freezer for the winter. I am going to make some partridge soup this weekend!!
And out trusty temperature gauge at the wood pile showed how really hot it was today - 80 degrees - I wish!!!
