I was up on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park looking for wildflowers and butterflies when I heard this low hoot coming from the shrubs. Hmmm…

I went to investigate and found a Dusky Grouse (formerly known as a Blue Grouse) and her chicks wandering in the shrubbed area. She posed long enough for me to get a photograph and then flew up into a tree. This little chick wandered about for a bit before mom came to get him. I love the top of their heads. It almost looks like they have a little crown.

It was interesting to learn that the Dusky Grouse does not migrate from north to south but rather up and down the mountain slopes.


Isn’t this little guy just adorable?
