Twelve Days of a Sportsman's Christmas

Last night I was outside building a 7 ft snowman with my four year old daughter and heard rustling just across the street.  I looked up just in time to see three Hungarian Partridge land on the neighbors lawn.  I grabbed Cid and started to creep on the birds.  That's when she spied a single "Hun" that was only 10 feet away in a juniper brush.  We froze, the bird froze and for a moment we were stopped in time.  Then a small explosion erupted and all the birds flew down to another neighbors, hopefully to fascinate them as much as they did us.  It wasn't the prairie but definitely a gift from mother nature.  Make sure you get out and enjoy the holidaze!
