I got out over the last weekend and got some grouse images here during the mating season. The first one is a pair of spruce grouse with the displaying male. He stood on various branches and called displaying his fortitude to the female.
Next I went to locate sooty grouse and got a few males to come out of the tree to look for the females. They would run around the snow looking for ladies but all they got was a camo clad photog. You know, this is the one time I think the white lens was actually camo in the snow. I put a few more on my website if anyone is interested. Thanks!
