Calling Grouse

Spent a few hours on January 2 driving around Cache Valley. I just had to check in on some of my favorite local birds, the Sharp-tailed Grouse in Paradise. I was pleasantly surprised to find a flock of 30 of these birds in town. At one point there were a dozen birds in a pine tree calling to each other--a low chuckling sound that is really cool. I was able to pick up a couple new birds for my 2008 list, including Mountain Chickadee, American Tree Sparrow, and a late Savannah Sparrow.
