Birds of Hawaii: Chukar

2 01 2009

The Chukar is a rotund 32-35 cm long bird, with a light brown back, gray breast, and buff belly. The face is white with a black gorget. It has streaked flanks and red legs. When disturbed, it prefers to run rather than fly, but if necessary it flies a short distance on rounded wings.
