[vermont] Ruffed Grouse

Heading home this week I had to stop for this little fella strutting across the road:

And I mean strutting. This ruffed grouse was taking his sweet time- stepping inch by inch- presumably to attract any female that might be watching. Not this female, though. I eventually grew impatient and started to crawl forward in the car. He took the hint and scooted right across the road onto the snow:

Thank you! Good luck finding a female soon!
