Observation details

All 5 were eating grit in the middle of the road before the snowplow came through and flushed them. They never returned to the road, but we were able to relocate three of them sitting in a tree beside the road. The female I photographed was insanely cooperative as we stood within 10 feet of her as she was at eye level. She sat patiently for upwards of 10 minutes until a car came through and spooked her.
