Game Birds

Game birds in the UK all belong to the order Galliformes. The cocks of most species are more colourful than the hens. Their food consists of grains and insects that they obtain by picking off the ground. They tend to fly relatively short distances with rapid wing beats and the flight will usually end in a long glide before the bird lands. They are present from lowland farms through woodland to mountain areas above the tree line with each species having a distinctive habitat.
