Last month I mentioned that willow ptarmigan hide in the snow to avoid predators. Here’s one nestled up to its neck, almost invisible except for his beak and eyes.
It’s awesome that he stays warm.
I don’t think Pittsburgh has enough snow to hide a ptarmigan right now, but I bet the Laurel Highlands does!
