The Great Bird Debate



While I was hiking, I was fortunate enough to come across this good looking bird. I had a few ideas what it could be and because of a couple good librarians, the mystery was solved. Of course, we have wonderful bird identification books in the Flathead County Library.


So, what kind of bird is it? Comment away and we'll unveil the answer next week.



Blue Grouse is the winner, to avoid copyright issues, I'll not post pics but you can do a Google Image search and find some great shots...
