Blue Grouse

Most of the time when my wife and I go out hiking it is to one beach or other. This last weekend for a change we headed into the hills to check out some logging roads we hadn't explored yet.

Found this interesting bird and took a number of handheld pictures with the Sigma 120-400. I have to admit it took me quite a while to figure out what kind of bird I had photographed. Eventually all the information I was able to find identified this as a male Blue Grouse.


  1. Oh man, don't tell me we're going to have to know the names of everything we photograph now! LOL

    Very nice shot, especially for handheld!

  2. Excellent capture of the Blue Grouse! Like the colors in this pic. Looks like a fairly large bird!

  3. This is a good find! Very clean shot, and good work.
