Photos OK to edit
I went looking for some deer this afternoon, but became more interested in a few flocks of chukar I encountered along the way. Chukars seem to like very steep and rocky habitat, with the recent snowfall we've had, the chukars were bunched up on southwest slopes where between the wind and sun there is more feed exposed. I think they're a beautiful and interesting bird.

Well proportioned shots of a fine looking bird. A type of grouse/partridge I take it by the look of them?
 
Nice set of a very interesting bird. Check your reds, the snow and clouds are pinkish.
 
Not seeing that on my screen.

Yes, they are a species of partridge. Sometimes called chukar partridge, but usually just chukar.
 
that's a bit different than anything i've ever seen. very cool photos.
 
I think you have done well , not just on this. I think you're real good at it.

Be well
