A New Hope

Cryptic Chicken

Female Grouse

This female grouse was being guarded by her mate so she could hunt and eat.

Baby Spruce Grouse

We were on a trail walking and stopped to listen to a bird in a tree. At that moment we didn’t know we were about 5 feet away from a Spruce Gouse hen and her chicks. The Grouse began clucking softly and then we spotted the family. A very special experience.
