Sharp-Tailed Grouse

It has been a lot of fun watching some new visitors to the neighborhood recently...several sharp-tailed grouse have been foraging through the trees looking for berries, spending quite a bit of time in my crabapple tree right outside my office window.

Once a sharpie sets up a territory, they are usually a permanent resident, so it will be interesting to see if these beautiful birds stick around for a while!  Several more game bird images can be viewed at Thompson Photography ~ Game Birds.  All of these images are available as fine art prints in a variety of sizes and can be ordered with mats only or matted and framed.  All custom framing and matting is done locally by Les Voorhis of Focus West Gallery, using a variety of American hardwoods, so you can be assured you are receiving a high-quality product handmade by South Dakota artists!
