The weather forecast for today isn’t as bright as it was on the day last January when I photographed this Chukar walking across a field of fresh snow instead the forecast for today is rather dreary. There won’t be any sparkles on the snow currently on the ground because; well, it doesn’t look like the sun will break through the clouds.
The morning I photographed this Chukar was clear and finger-numbing cold as the Chukars were out and about foraging for any seeds they could find on Antelope Island State Park in the bright sunshine. I laughed quite often because the Chukars would break through the thin crust that had formed overnight on the snow and would be chest deep in the white stuff.
