Beautiful shot of this pretty bird, Katy! If that
bird sat still, it would blend right in. Nature
sure knows how to make camouflage! I like the
little spot of red over the eye. Congratulations
on your Blue!

Quoting katy99780:


The grouse are spending quite a bit of time lately on the shoulders of the roads.

I wonder if it's because they want to play CHICKEN with cars! :-)
Congrats on blue.
