I'm thinking the vast majority of Ring-necked Pheasants shouldn't be countable either. How many generations away from the released ancestor does it have to be to be countable?Count it and enjoy the bird. The strict science is taking all the fun out of this pastime.

The person reporting the Chukar isn't known by the general Colorado Springs birding community, so we've no way of contacting her.
Also, it's my understanding that the only wild Chukars are on the Western Slope, so this bird is likely one that was to be used for hunting purposes. For that reason, it's not officially considered "countable." (Similar to the Bobwhites that are seen at Chico Basin Ranch from time to time. Again, brought in to be hunted.)
Just my 2 cents.

Hey there?
Is there any contact or visitor information for going to see the Chucker in the Springs?

Thanks,
