This chukar partridge was spotted by my cousin Jackie, who called me and asked, “Do you have your camera?!? GET OUTSIDE!!!”
So I ran.
What are you doing here Mr. Chukar? You live on the western part of the US year round and you do not migrate…this is Chicago!
Hey, anybody from Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Washington? I HAVE YOUR BIRD! hahahaha.
The big monster (me) is noticed by the chukar, so he lies low.
I still see you.
Anyway, I sketched this from my photos to document this bird. I do not know why he is in this area. Maybe someone brought him and released. I wish him luck as it will be very cold soon. Maybe he can find his way home.
