I ran out for a late afternoon/dusk nature drive along Goose Lake Road today. The birding was slow but steady as the weather had dipped to cold again. A ways up the road, a Ruffed Grouse was up in the trees gorging on buds. The Ruffed Grouse picture below was photographed through my open sunroof. I’m quickly learning this feature on a vehicle is very conducive to birding.
