Ptarmigan Two

David (Highlandfisky) and I had a trip out west to meet Annie (AnnieMacD) with a plan to find some Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta).

Our persistance eventually paid off when we finally spotted this pair feeding in the grass between the scattered rocks; just like the Hare, the birds are losing their winter white coat to blend with the surroundings.
