2016—Sprucing Up

When we walked along the Coastal Trail in Kinkaid Park in Anchorage, we encountered not only several moose crossing the roadway, but we came across a trio of Spruce Grouse, two females and one male.  The male was trying his best to impress the females.  When one of the females flew off, the remaining female perched aptly in a spruce tree and watched from afar.  She was still there when the male disappeared and we walked on down the road.
