Gray Partridge and Chukar

Gray partridge and chukar are closely related upland game birds native to Eurasia.

The gray partridge has a rusty colored face and a gray chest with a dark colored U-shaped blotch on their belly. Their beak is dark and legs gray. The chukar is similar with a red bill and feet and a black necklace. No wild populations of chukar are known to persist in the state, although liberated birds are occasionally encountered by upland game hunters. Gray partridge can be found in grassy and agricultural areas, especially where there are shelterbelts and woodlots. They are jumpy and may flush in groups at some distance.
