While pheasants seem to hold the interest of most hunters who like shotguns and bird dogs, America has so many other upland bird species to keep you and your dog busy all autumn long. In fact, the chance is strong that one of these species is living somewhere nearby. Study the list, then go out and hunt them. Like all things involving bird dogs and shotguns, there is never a dull moment!
Don't miss our photo gallery of the America's "other" upland birds.
To learn more about each bird, visit Cornell University's Bird ID website here. You can hear songs and see the birds in normal habitat.
