A Chukar on Antelope Island State Park

Two days ago I spotted this Chukar on the edge of the road near the marina at Antelope Island State Park, the Chukar was at road level but just beyond the rock there is a slope that drops about 25 to 30 feet. I know I wouldn’t want to tumble down that slope but the Chukars go down that slope as easily as a mountain goat can climb up the sides of Denali.

I do like the setting with the Rabbitbrush greening up in the background and the lichen covered rock. The soft pastels in the image  are soothing while the red bill and orbital ring give a nice pop of color.
