Additional Research NEW

Could this bird actually be a Rock Partridge which is a close relative to the Chukar and often interbreeds with the Chukar. The darker color is the main reason I ask.

Thanks very much. This was a new one for me and my on-line research had failed. I love this website and the help you folks can give.

Cheers!

This looks like a Chukar, a non-native game bird in the eastern USA.
