I have to share. I have this little grouse friend. I've named him Puddin'. He comes to visit me at my house in Cherryfield. Apparently ruffed grouses are known for this...befriending people. I'd never heard of such a thing, so imagine my surprise when this little chicken comes strutting up to me in the yard like we're old friends. He follows me around, and gets terribly huffy if I don't let him into the garden with me. So, I have to lift the edge of the deer fencing and he scampers in. He follows me around like a little pet! If I sit down and plant seeds, he comes and settles in beside me, rocking down into the earth, and his little belly puffs out, hence the name Puddin'.
