Grouse display


Two female Ruffed Grouse in my yard were standing nearby while watching another: a male in display. He had erected his eponymous ruff, the long black feathers on his neck, and had spread his tail feathers to form a fan.

The message was clear: “I want you, baby.”

    Somehow the comment on the male who had “erected his eponymous ruff” extends the notion of background information for me.
