Ruffed Grouse in a hot spot

On a cold winters day a ruffed grouse finds the hot spot where thermal activity below the surface has melted the snow above. Yellowstone National Park, WY.

    1. Grouse are indeed lovely birds and it is always fun to come across one when out in the woods and this was cool given they were feeding in a thermal area. Hope you are keeping warm and enjoying the weekend.
