As I was walking back to my office after having taught class on 21 October 2003, I was surprised to see a Chukar foraging on the ground just outside the Hermann Union Building on the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) campus. The next day I brought my camera to work to get some photos of this odd bird. The Chukar was captured on Friday, 24 October 2003.
