Franklin’s Spruce Grouse

After I posted my Spruce Grouse video, I found this really awesome video of a “Franklin’s” Spruce Grouse. This sub-species of the Spruce Grouse is only found in the northern Rockies and Cascade mountain ranges. Part of their display flight is a “wing-clap” which is shown in this video. I’ve heard the wing clap described as sounding like a shotgun. Watch the video and decide for yourself, either way it’s pretty cool! Kudos to the person who had the opportunity to video tape this bird in action.
