Wordless Wednesday with Linky - The Lone Chukar - May 14, 2014


We do have one very strange bird that lives near our home.  It is a Middle Eastern partridge called a chukkar [chuh-kahr].   We used to have so many.  Last year, we did not see them at all, but on Sunday this one came calling.  It was also here yesterday.  We hope that it stays around as we give our birds plenty of seeds and water.



These pictures were taken with our Nikon D40 with our new amazing lens from Tamron.  The Tamron is a wide angle to zoom lens 18-270mm.  It's all we need now, and we never have to change lenses.


Do you have a Nikon, Canon, or Sony camera that you change the lenses on?  Would you like a new lens like mine?  You can!  I have a giveaway that ends Wednesday 11:50pm PST for this exact same lens that I reviewed and is worth $449!  Be sure to enter!

    1. Karren, the chukar are more of a partridge or part of the pheasant family. We do have Gambel's quail that stay all the time around our house for the food, water, and trees to roost in overnight.

  4. Oh, what a beautiful bird! I hope it does continue to visit your, and I hope it's not alone, that it can find a mate. Thanks for sharing! (And I've got my fingers crossed--I have a Nikon D60, and I, too, photograph the birds in my yard, so I would LOVE to win the Tamron lens!)

    1. After reading up on the chukar, I realized that they stay in the rocky mountain near us more. Since it is spring, the males are probably fighting of the females. This fellow may have gotten himself booted out for a little while after losing a gal to another fellow. They will probably be down for water later this summer.

  5. It reminds me a bit of the quail I saw this past winter in AZ. w/o the head curl of course:) When you visited you said "In my desert where I live, we have such a variety colors, but hardly any blue birds. We will get lazuli buntings during the summer, but they never stay long. Currently at our home our most colorful are black headed grosbeaks, tanagers, Gambel's quail, house finches. The grosbeaks and tanagers just strip the fruit from our fruit trees and leave the seeds hanging like stones on the branches. "
    I also get the rose breasted grosbeaks, house finch& occasionally tanagers. They are just to fast for my little point & shoot camera :) I may have to enter your giveaway for my hubby he has a better camera! thanks for stopping & linking up! Faythe @GrammyMouseTails

  11. What an interesting bird and beautiful shots! I can only imagine how much my sister would love it. She has begun bird-watching and is always telling me about all kinds of birds she sees. I don't see many interesting ones around here.
