Grouse / Sunsets (5/15/14)
I woke up a few mornings ago and saw this guy strutting his stuff:
I rubbed my eyes to make sure I was seeing him correctly. I thought maybe the poor thing had rabies or something. Really, I should have taken a video. I’ve never seen a bird walk around like this guy. A search of the bird book and good ‘ole Google confirmed this is a sharp-tailed grouse, specifically, a “displaying male.” I gotta say, I don’t know what that dance is supposed to do for anyone. If he was my friend, I would have said “Put your tail feathers down and just stop.”
Moving on. Some pretty sunsets this week:
Hopefully the kayak goes in the water this weekend!!!!
