Male Blue Grouse (Dendragapus Obscurus)

The weather was not very good this day but this guy made up for it. This is yet another first for me. I had a hard time deciding which photos of the Blue Grouse to upload. I was really happy with the way they all turned out. I was finally able to narrow down the 29 photos I took of him to 4. :)

 

This guy did not fly away; rather he kept walking away from me and I just kept following him around.
