I was out hiking in Yellowstone last week and came across this bird. It's behavior seemed odd to me. It would jump up from my feet, fly 10 or 15 feet and then settle down like this on a rock. It did this over and over, each time settling down on the rock like it was nesting. I didn't appear to be injured or protecting a nest. Its camoflauge was so good, I'd lose it against the rocks when I'd look down at my camera.

Sorry about my less than stellar manual focusing ability.
