Using own long-term data from three different populations we analysed the variation in egg covering within and among grey partridge females during their nesting cycle from the early stage of the first egg until late incubation.
However, the total effects of parasitism on productivity of birds nesting in these sites is unknown and may warrant further investigation.
A partial list of nesting sites includes: nest boxes, mailboxes, flowerpots, drainpipes, hats, cans, teapots, folded awnings, old boots, fish creels, parked cars, and in the pockets of pants hung out to dry.

Not surprisingly, few nest records exist (n = 234 nests range-wide as of January 2013; USFWS, 2013); most of these nests were recorded only recently, and nearly all (88%) were found during targeted studies on the nesting ecology of this species in south-coastal Alaska.
There are additional accounts that suggest nesting, but active nests have not been located or described.

However, habitats chosen by birds for nesting must exhibit features that lead to congruence between habitat preference and reproductive success (Chalfoun and Schmidt, 2012), of which nest survival is an important component (Martin, 1993a).
