    I took these pictures about two weeks ago while I was in Canada. It was the first time I had ever seen a Spruce Grouse! I wish the lighting was a little better. Taken with my D90 and 70-300mm VR. All at 300mm with no cropping. Enjoy!

    Very nice bird, tough conditions! I'd love to see one of those.
     
  3. Evasive grouse huh?
    Good catch.

    That's probably the only time I'll ever see one.

    Thanks! Actually it wasn't shy. I was able to get fairly close to it.

    Thank you! I could have gotten a better capture if I had used a speedlight.
