Re: [Mendobirds] Chukar
- Hi. There was a small flock of them July 2002 in the brush past the
fence at the south end of the Ukiah Sewage Ponds; the staff there had a
photo of one wandering past the office and I saw the flock. Folks I
contacted at local chapter suggested they were escaped from CIty of 10K

- I was riding my bike on Sanford Ranch Rd about 5:15 pm today (Friday) and I saw a Chukar crossing the road from east to west into Beckstoffer's Vineyard. This is directly north of the Talmage Post Office by about 1/4 mile. There is no doubt in my mind at all that this bird was released by the Buddhists, but it is still a very neat and pretty bird to see. The bird is a little wary if you try to see it and it stays on the ground.
