Drumming Ruffed Grouse 005
Even the feathers under the tail have unique designs to them.
I called a friend and we watched and photographed Rusty for about an hour. We pointed the grouse out to several park visitors, as they would not have noticed the grouse otherwise.
Very few people get a chance to see a ruffed grouse drumming in the wild. It made several peoples day to see it drumming.
