Dusky Grouse

Dusky_grouse_23298

A Dusky Grouse keeping quiet while waiting for us to move along as we walked through the cottonwood trees in the creek bed. Seeing these birds move through the dry leaves and into the cottonwood trees with colors so similar to their own just makes a fall day feel…just like fall.

    What a great photo. I love how the background suggests that the bird could be hard to see, yet the photo gives such a clear image of the grouse. Cool.

    1. Thanks Kit, there were actually at least one more grouse but they stayed hidden in the grass around the tree. In the grass they are so out of sight we would never see them unless flushed.

feedback welcome
