The Chukar is a small flighty bird. This photo is of a Chukar Redleg. Known for their flying ability and their zebra like stripes, they are a favorite addition to gamebird hunts. These birds hold well in cover and get up and go when flushed. These birds thrive in dry arid conditions; however, recently they have become a very popular additive to hunts looking to add speed to their hunts. These birds tend to run uphill and flush down hill often giving the hunters numerous chances. Habitat consists of small grain or brushy terrain. To hold the birds in the terrain a small stream or water source is necessary.
