Spruce Grouse

Falcipennis canadensis

Trusting in its camouflage, the Spruce Grouse commonly allows close approach. This behavior earned it the nickname of ‘fool’s hen’. The home range of these birds is most of Canada, Alaska and a few areas in the northern USA. They feed largely on the needles of spruces and other conifers.
