For those of you who saw this picture on Thursday and Friday…
and those of you who saw my post yesterday (here)…
and for Janet Keefe and the gang at Wag n Woof Pets who asked if the picture above was a ruffed grouse… and for Molly the Wally and Dog the Dina who asked if I found something good or sniffed something good…
I tried to retrieve the bird for my Human, but she called me off…She said that the bird looked like it had been injured in a panic flight from a predator. My Human also said that Grouse have a very high mortality rate because they are at the bottom of the food chain for lots of predators.
My Human was able to capture a few fast photos with the telephoto lens. We often catch a glimpse of these birds but they are moving too fast to ever get a picture.
Y’all come back now!
Grouse are indeed VERY fast birds. Those are some super shots your human got.ReplyDelete
Your human sure got some awesome shots of the grouse! Looks like you are off on another adventure! It is so pretty where you live! xoxo Chloe and LadyBugReplyDelete
Grouse...I love chasing grouse but have never caught one but I try. Have a marvellous Monday Hawk.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
Cool pictures. I tried to get a pictures of one flying, but they are just so fast.ReplyDelete
So I guess you did find something interesting! Great pictures!ReplyDelete
Great photos, we have never seen Grouse before!ReplyDelete
Poor bird, I'm glad your human didn't let you at it. :-)ReplyDelete
I don't think I have ever seen a grouse, Hawk. Those are some great photos your mom got of it. I hope you are having a great Monday!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the photos, Hawk! Never seen one before,ReplyDelete
Great photos! I hope the bird recovers, though.ReplyDelete
No wonder you were sniffing away. Great pictures of the grouse!ReplyDelete
Great photos by your human, Hawk! It is difficult to get photos of them, we usually only see them in flight when one of the dogs flushes them up! Occasionally in the winter we get them at our bird feeders though, but they also leave pretty quickly when they see us. You were such a good boy not to bother that one!ReplyDelete

As much as I love mischief, I'm glad you were able to leave the birdie in peace! :)ReplyDelete
Hope you're having a fun day
Your pal Snoopy :)
We missed this post while traveling. So glad you hopped by today and left the link- I love that grouse. And you too, of course, Hawk! :)ReplyDelete
