“Perdiz” is Spanish slang for the red-legged partridge. In Argentina and Uruguay, the tinamou is the species that is referred to as the the perdiz. The “real” Perdiz are actually not available to hunt in Argentina.
May to August: Estancia Cortaderas
The Tinamou or “Perdiz” as it is known in Argentina is a partridge which lives in the abundant grass of the vast Argentine countryside. Argentina is home to 15 species of partridge, the most common of which is the Spotted Tinamou. Partridges exist in large numbers in rural Argentina because they lay eggs 4 to 6 times per year and live in well-concealed locations. They survive on a diet of seeds and insects which, when combined with the fact that they walk more than they fly, is why partridges have what is perhaps the most tender and delicious breast meat of any game bird. Because of their strong inclination to walk, partridges also afford good scent trails to our pointing dogs. They depart with an explosive burst of speed, producing 40-60 yard targets as the whistle of wing beats pierces the tranquility of the rural setting.
