Early bird gets the...seeds?

The Chuckers have returned.  I saw them descend on my property last fall for the first time.  And they're baaaack.  What are they eating??  Some kind of seeds? I can't imaging what would draw them to this sagebrush bench, away from irrigated fields.  But they are here, daily, for about a week.  
Over the hill they go.
