Manna from Heaven

This is the third time this has happened...we hear a loud thump, go out to investigate , and theres a dead partridge still twitching , laying under a window. Its my preferred method of hunting really, no birdshot or scary guns involved. Just a recurring delivery straight from the heavens to our house. We had two delivered last fall, half an hour apart and most delicious they were too.

I havent found out if they are just dumb birds and poor navigators or if its a territorial thing, maybe they are purposely attacking a perceived rival when they see their reflection in the glass.

Whatever the reason, its a 5 minute job to skin and clean a partridge, this one will be tomorrow nights supper with baked potatoes and assorted vegetables from the garden...yum!
