Windows on Wildlife: Deceased Spruce Grouse
Welcome to the 8th edition of Windows on Wildlife (wow – two months!)! If you have a recent post about wildlife you’d like to share – it can be anything: birds, insects, mammals – scroll down to the end of the post and add your site; a compilation of all additions will be posted the following week. Please don’t forget to link back here (I’d love it if you’d add the Windows on Wildlife button on the sidebar to your post) and visit other blogs that have articles to share. Thanks for stopping by!
Ok, I know I said I wasn’t going to share pictures of the deceased
parrot spruce grouse we found in the Catskills, but I couldn’t help myself. And since I still have lingering doubts about its identification, decided it couldn’t hurt to put it out there (after all, I post pictures of scat, don’t I? Can this really be any worse?). Perhaps someone can help affirm (or deny) my identification.
This was the most, ah, dignified photo we had:
If you didn’t catch it, see my full post on our encounter with the spruce grouse here.
Please pardon the awful pun, but I’m killing two birds with one stone and linking up this week’s Windows with Wildlife to Michelle’s awesome Nature Notes meme.
Last week, Jenny at Just Photos by Me, shared some cool pics of macroinvertebrates and other pond critters found in her part of the UK during a school field trip (including a beautiful damselfly!). Fergiemoto at Creativity Aroused took some really stunning pics of a battle between two different hummingbird species – you’ve really got to check these out! If you have a post/photo of wildlife (alive or otherwise…) that you’d like to share, link up with us below!
