Observation details

incredibly photogenic! In the closed-canopy, coniferous forest, there were two different male Spruce Grouse sitting in the snow. Largely unperturbed by a large number of birder/photographers, one of the birds moved up into a large White Spruce tree, and gave everyone additional modeling poses.
