Chukar or Chakor is also the national bird of Pakistan. Used to be quite common in the hilly and mountainous regions of all provinces. Usually found between 1500 to 4500m above sea level. Over hunting, loss of habitat and pesticides have played a major role in the decrease in population of these birds. Before you know it they will be considered under threatened species and if something is not done to save it in the regions where there numbers are alarmingly low, they will vanish from those areas maybe for ever.
