  1. No, Chukar are old world birds introduced into the Americas. The California Valley Quail is most closely related to the Gambel's Quail. This feather came from the back near the neck.

  10. Polka Dot Moth I got the pattern from Helen Shaw's Flies for Fish and Fisherman. It is, apparently, based on the Polka Dot Wasp Moth or Oleander Moth. I could not find out any information about the fly. I would it originates in an area that has a lot of oleander bushes and Oleander Moths but that is just a guess.
