Most birds called partridges belong to one family, which includes several species of true partridges native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. The family also includes the North American quail, known as �bobwhite� in the northern United States and as �partridge� in the South. The ruffed grouse of North America belongs to a different family, but is often called �partridge� in the northern states.
