CO - White-tailed Ptarmigan - May '09
Wonderfully cryptic, ridiculously approachable and absolutely enchanting! A personal highlight of the recent Birdfinders trip to Colorado & Wyoming, this fine male White-tailed Ptarmigan fed unconcerned by the tourist masses within meters of the main road through Rocky Mountain National Park. These images were taken over two days, May 24th and 25th.
