@05:05Come to find out from my relatives in the area that this bird has been around in the same area for about 3 years, and has always been very tame, even to the point of my uncle having to capture it under a net so he could finish using his chainsaw, and then releasing it when he was done so it wouldn't get hurt.

So, I was out taking photos today, and this grouse decided to befriend me, or at least, to not be scared of me. Made for a great photo-op and a few laughs.

Then I decided to take out my phone because it was just too unbelievable...
I hope you enjoy this little 5 minute clip as much as I enjoyed making it.

@05:05Aww, that was just adorable! ^^

We went to a zoo and this little bird kept following us like we were it's mom. ^^

That's so cool, you got to pick it up!

@05:05Fascinating behaviour! Just a few minutes ago I read a detailed account of a similarly tame Ruffed Grouse that a couple of birders encountered on Prince Edward Island yesterday. The bird came so close to them that one of them tried to push it away with their sneaker but the grouse simply hopped onto their sneaker! In the end they drove away in their truck with the grouse in hot pursuit running at full speed behind them!! A Google search for 'tame Ruffed Grouse' will turn up many similar reports but no definitive explanation. Some think that the grouse are trying to protect a nest but similar behaviour has been noted at seasons when they are not nesting so this explanantion seems unlikely. I need to do some more research!

@05:05Very interesting, I suppose they're related to chickens. Perhaps they're smarter, or dumber, than they appear... I personally think they're smarter than people give them credit for.
