Spoted this in my back yard the other day. I've never seen it before and have no clue what it is. Any help? It has stuck around for a few days now. Also if you look close it's beak looks damaged )-= Thanks for any help!

Your location is Pennsylvania. Is this where it was shot? Location always helps accuracy.

Thanks so much Dan! It's a pretty cool bird, I enjoyed watching it run around the back yard. It's always nice to spot something new.
Thanks again!!

Thanks for letting me know, as they say never to old to learn something new....both look so similar, I've never heard of the Chuckar before so I guessed (wrongly) it was a local term for a RLP.
