Maine Photos - Grouse & Moose
Here are a couple of supplementary photos to those posted several days ago by Janet. They were also taken during our lynx workshop up in the wilds of Maine. The first shot shows where a grouse landed on a fallen tree, and then walked down to the ground below. The second shows a closer view. Grouse don't seem to be particularly graceful in the landing department. The final picture was taken in the town of Greenville, and, though I lack Janet's keen detection skills, my guess is that the subject moose is a sub-adult female. That guess is based not only on the presence of the bows on the antlers, but also on their profusion, indicating the classic juvenile inability to know when enough is enough.
