Ruffed Grouse - or as I wanted to call it A Ruffled Grouse Dec 2013

Ruffled Grouse - eating berries in the tree.  On my way to my moms on Wed night I saw it in the tree.  It was 4:30 so not much light.

like this shot.

posted this so you could see the legs


  1. Lucky shots, they usually explode out of the tree and leave before I even see them! Are those grapes it's eating?

  2. I am not sure but I think buckthorn. The treesvon mom road were full of them. I am sure the grouse didn't leave because I took photos from car.
