We have been watching a pair of Chukar (Alectoris chukar) feeding on grasses 
in our side yard for the past 1 hour and 15 min beginning at 3:45 pm friday 
april 2.  We are located on top of the niagara escarpment just above 
Beamsville in an open location surrounded by hundreds of acres of grape 
vineyards.  As I post this one Chukar remains but we have lost sight of his 
mate.  If interested in viewing phone us first to confirm the bird(s) is/are 
still  present.
Directions: QEW to Ontario St. Beamsville.  South on Ontario St to end at 
stop light at King St.,   Beamsville.  Left (east) on King St for 100yards 
to first right which is Moun tain Street.  Turn right onto mountain street 
and follow south up the escarpment untill you come to a 4-way stop at Fly 
Road.  Turn right (west) onto fly road and go about 1/2 km look for a large 
white house with 7 dormers on the right (north) side of Fly Rd (#5323).  The 
bird(s) are in the west side yard in the
lee of the cedar hedge.
