- The chukor (চকোর), also known as the red-legged or Himalayan partridge or curlew or bartavelle, is the national bird of Iraq and Pakistan. References to it date back to the Rg Veda. The chukor is reputed to gaze at the moon constantly and is hence said to be in love with the moon or to drink moonlight. In Indian mythology, the chukor often symbolizes intense love, sometimes unrequited.
