Hello friends, yesterday I was at a
pointing dog (hunting dog) activity,
this Chukar Partridge it is a farm bird,
I want to say by that, that it is not
born in the wild, it is born in a farm
but that they fly-up very well and we
(people of pointing dogs) use them
for pointing dogs activities.

This bird after being pointed by a dog,
from the field it fly-up to the woods,
it is what they do these birds once
they are pointed and then flushed.

1/1600s, f/3.5, ISO1000,
85mm (35mm eq:127mm).

- Chukar Partridge
- Perdrix choukar
- Alectoris chukar

from the All About Birds website

« A native of southern Eurasia,
the Chukar was introduced into the
United States from Pakistan to be
a game bird. It lives in arid,
rocky terrain across the western
United States and southern Canada. »

Hi Asbed.
I welcome you attempts to shoot at difficult conditions. Subject is very attractive and deserves to capture. Despite tee bright light BG you managed to exposure the bird very well. However, the bird looks dolefully. Best wishes.

Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Hello Asbed,
Nice photo of this Chukar in a tree. Good sharpness and natural colours, despite the difficult light conditions. Fine composition.

Hi Asbed. This is a bird you posted a few posts ago in mid air. It has amazing tail feathers in flight. I was wondering if you get around to posting one on the ground. I didn't know they are domestic from the farm. It's a nice looking bird but you need a better background for it. I hope you show some more ground shots of him. TFS Trevor. P.S.-good shot with good colours for low lighting.

Hello Asbed,
As usual very beautiful natural moment you have captured.
It's look like that the bird is bit relax mood.
Great composition and timing.Nice BG and framing.
Good natural color and details.
Thanks for sharing.


great moment, fine scene and composition, with good distance a very good performance!
regards Asbed!

Bonjour Asbed,

Les branches cadrent bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la Perdrix choukar. Malgré que l'oiseau soit à l'ombre cela ne nuit pas au rendu des couleurs. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Asbed,
J'ai manqué quelques unes de tes images. Celle-ci par sa coloration fine a capté mon attention. J'aime bien aussi le bel environnement naturel où tu as trouvé ta Perdrix choukar, qui par ailleurs est bien camouflée parmi ces branches touffues. Bien vu!

Hello Asbed.

Excellent capture of this Perdrix choukar.

Very interesting point of view shoving us the bird in his biotope. Good composition of the picture, with a good placement of the bird inside the frame. Sharpness and depth of field perfectly well managed. Good contrast and proper saturation of the colours. Background welkl blurred.

Interesting note giving us the craving to know more on the birds (through the link you gave us).

All the best.


Great capture of a Alectoris chukar camouflaged among the branches.
Congratulations on the hunt.
I have a workshop dedicated to this beautiful photograph.
A hug.
