Chukar Partridge – Natural Bird Sound

The chukar partridge, or simply chukar/Chakor, is a Palearctic upland gamebird in the pheasant family Phasianidae.

It has been considered to form a superspecies complex along with the rock partridge, Philby’s partridge and Przevalski’s partridge and treated in the past as conspecific particularly with the first.

Brown iris, red around the eyes. Mouth red. Feet red. Body length 38 cm. The upper body is pinkish gray, the throat is white, the chest is gray, and the abdomen is brownish-yellow, with more than ten black and maroon juxtaposed horizontal spots and white stripes on each flank.

There is a black stripe on the forehead that runs across the eyes and down to the neck, forming a chest band.

Widely distributed in Europe, Central Asia. It is the national bird of Pakistan.

Native to Asia, the species has been introduced into many other places and feral populations have established themselves in parts of North America and New Zealand.
