This is when I spotted him as I approached the bend...
As I came closer, he seemed to become more proud of his position in the road!
Each time I inched the car forward, he would puff up a little more. I would speak sweetly to him, telling him not to be frightened...do you think he was listening and responding to me??? Ha ha, that would be a pleasant experience...lol!
It was only after Ron (our neighbor) pulled up behind me that I had to move forward, which resulted in this handsome fellow moving into the woods...
A Grouse really is a beautiful bird, wouldn't you agree?
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
