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.
