While photographing Black-billed Magpies last week I noticed a pair of Chukars up close and decided to take portraits of the closest bird. It isn’t all that often that these upland game birds get this close to me so I jumped at the opportunity.
The Chukars on Antelope Island State Park have been calling from the rocks and chasing each other around through the sage, rabbitbrush and boulders for a couple of weeks now and their squabbles are always great fun to watch and photograph.
It won’t be long and there will be little Chukars running around!
Life is good.
P.S. I didn’t spot any curlews yesterday.
