Greetings J-ryu, Thanks for the visits and the comments, the grouse is a very shy and flighty bird. The ptarmigan is very careful to conserve valuable energy and fly only as a last resort. These particular birds are used to people and know there is no danger, so you can walk right up to them and they just go about their business as if you weren't there. Cheers, Rich
