ECT folks are not trained Ornithologists. However we believe we have correctly ID’d this fellow who stopped by last Sunday morning to say hello.
UPDATE: AM, Monday, April 28th…Ornithological Correction needed. See below.
He’s a ‘Ruffed Grouse’ we believe…and the ECT admired his amazing natural camouflage. At about 50 feet…and if this Grouse wasn’t moving you have a hard time picking him out between he snow, rocks and black top driveway.
Just click on the photos to enlarge them!
Correction! ECT reader/contributor Jim Gonzales correctly ID’d this Grouse as a “Blue or otherwise known as a Dusky” Grouse. Jim submitted his own, recent photo (below) of a Blue/Dusky Grouse in his area.
