It is a Chukar. It is obviously not a wild bird to end up in Salem.

Subject: [obol] Bird ID picture attached
Picture taken mid-spring in South Salem by friend of friend.. Sent to me today. Story is bird flew into window. Home owner tried to catch it—some kind of ‘chicken’. Bird flew away and not seen again. I know nothing about how it comes to being offered watermelon. I think the bird is a Chukar. I’ve only seen one once in E. OR. What’s it doing in Salem? Please ID the bird. Thanks Pat Tilley
