National Bird Of Pakistan

The Chukar Partridge or more specifically Red-legged partridge (Alectoris chukar) is beautiful bird in the pheasant family Phasianidaethe. Chukar Partridge has black and white bars on the flanks and a black band running from the forehead across the eye and running down the head to form a necklace that encloses a white throat. It has red legs, beak and eye rims. Chukar Partridge is the national bird of Pakistan.

The gloomy and weak Chukar, you see here in the picture, is the true representation of Pakistani nation, who is facing in-numerous problems including poverty, high inflation rate, low education standard and literacy rate, unemployment, political instability, poor economic growth, terrorism, insecurity, corruption and particularly the energy crises. A nation who is facing 20-22 hours daily electricity load-shedding. A nation who claims to be the 7th Nuclear Power, but got no medal in the 2012 London Olympic games, even after 66 years of its independence.

In punjab Chukar has been considered as a symbol of intense and often unrequited love. It is a symbol of dedication, eunthasism and constant effort. They are kept in some areas as fighting birds. Chukars prefer rocky, steep, and open hillsides. In the wild, Chakors travel in groups of 5-40 birds called coveys. For hunters, Chakor is a very challenging bird because of its surgical upward flights and sudden disappearances in the bushes.
