Absolutely Nothin'..... and A Chukar...Chukka, chukka,,, chuk!

Absolutely nothin' got done today, or rather
I did absolutely nothin' but rest.
So thought I'd do a little "wild kingdom" program.
There was a family in Arizona that recently spent two nights in the desert
in low temps, evidently in an area where people hunt for chukars.
I don't know how many people know what  chukar is.
Then I remembered a chukar that came to visit one day, and of course,
grabbed the camera.
This bird seemed very docile and tame, but it is not a pet.  It is wild.  It seemed to be
a little lost, in a way,  as it kept calling,
"Chukka, chukka, chuk....!"
It let me get quite close, while taking photos.
It's a very pretty bird, and is in the partridge family. 
I haven't seen one since that day.
