Chukar

We saw a couple of Chukars near our apartment yesterday. I thought they were quails at first, but they had no head plumes. We have a tattered Peterson’s Field Guide to Western Birds in our car, that aided in the identification.

If you like field guides, then you should be aware of enature.com, which has pages for more than 5,500 North American birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, spiders, wildflowers, trees, and seashells. Here is the page for the Chukar, which includes a link where you can listen to what a Chukar sounds like (something the Peterson’s guide cannot do).

Grace and peace
