The feathery visitor this morning

Wild Grouse
G called me to come see the visitor on our front lawn and at first it was like looking for Waldo as the Grouse just blended into the leaves. We wondered if it was hurt or stunned as Grant could go right up and stroke it. It appeared to want to rest. The dogs were still snoring it off so I knew I had a little window of time to get a photograph of this beautiful wild bird. Eventually it got up and ran under our lilac tree. A short time later I heard Zeus bark sharply and found a raven was playing with him. Of course the elusive bird flew away when I came out to investigate. They are very shy birds.

Grant's hand

back to sleep

See you again soon!
