I've never been one to focus on birds but I've always had a love for upland game birds. These days I find myself snapping a few more shots of birds than before. We recently went out on an early morning drive and came across a beautiful Greater Sage Grouse blending in perfectly with it's surroundings here in Wyoming. I love the mellow earth tone colors that create these photos.

Nicely caught, Renee. I haven't seen Sage Grouse since I lived in Alberta.

Thanks Roger! I love upland game birds and they are especially yummy both grouse and pheasants. I love earth tones in the winter, it's my favorite time to shoot. Do you live in a place that doesn't have them?

Yes. I'm now settled down in Southern Ontario and all we have here is the Ruffed Grouse and maybe the odd Spruce Grouse once in a while.

Sounds a bit like our Aussie kangaroos ... one can walk into an empty farm paddock and suddenly there are 50 - 100 roos all hopping away as fast as they can
ps- your pics above are great - got any more?

We hunt them each year but it's on limited basis with the Sage grouse unlike others. They are tasty that's for sure.

Thanks! I'm not much for photographing birds but, I LOVE upland game birds like pheasants, grouse, quail, chucker. When I'm not photographing wild horses I seem to find mountain blue birds, horned larks, meadowlarksCanada geese, ducks, great blue heron, sandhill crane, eagle, osprey and belted king fishers.
