Warren took this picture of a Grouse at a house he was inspecting in the British Properties. They aren't the smartest birds in the world. Warren started making the noise they make (sort of a throaty Whoomp whoomp) and the dumb bird must have thought he was the weirdest looking Grouse making the mating call, and came close enough for Warren to take this photo.

Great photo. I'm afraid if I saw this bird I would think it was a strange pigeon because I don't know enough about bird breeds. I'm trying to learn more, though, because I see so many new birds in Norway and am curious about them. I found some good websites and am starting a bit of research. Now that it's getting cold here, I've started putting bread out so I can get a closer look at the birds that hang out in my garden. I would love to get a photo one half as good as this one.

Take care!
