COVER: CHUKAR PARTRIDGE

Painting by Athos Menaboni

A native of India which was first systematically stocked in the U.S. in the '20s, the chukar partridge today represents one of the most successful plantings of exotic birds yet achieved in this country. In the state of Nevada, for example, a total stocking of some 5,000 birds has grown to such proportions that this year's kill is expected to exceed 30,000. In other western states from California to Wyoming, chukar stockings show similar promise. This bird, one of 22 subspecies of a south Asian rock partridge and known scientifically as Alectoris graeca, is one of several exotic and many familiar species discussed in the PREVIEW of upland game birds beginning on page 22.
