Thats a partridge Kim. It used to be common in Greece and Crete also. There are not many left on the mountains of Crete now, due to their hunting. When I was a kid they were everywhere around the village and we could hear them singing at around the sunset, just before they were ready to settle for the night. It is a beautiful bird and I was really moved when I saw a big colony of them around the Poseidon Temple in cape Sounion near Athens, where they are protected.
Check the following link which will take you to one of my posts with a few of them.
