2020—Dusky Grouse

On Tuesday morning when we stopped at Madison Junction in Yellowstone National Park for hot chocolate, one of the yellow Snow Coaches was stopped in the middle of the roadway because a resident Dusky Grouse was underneath it. We weren’t sure how it got there but a few minutes later when we returned with our camera gear, the grouse had moved out into the open on the snowy road. Several of us flopped down flat onto the snow for a better angle of view and focused on the grouse. The bird, that apparently was acclimated to people, worked its way slowly across the snow until it got near enough to the trees that it flew into the nearby pines.
