This blue grouse landed on a small, dead branch of a fir tree in the Lamar Valley. It had spent a couple of weeks in the same area. Grouse can digest some plant foods that contain bitter or toxic chemicals, and therefore, can live in harsh winter environments like Yellowstone. It had been eating needles from evergreens and other dry herbs from the ground and remained wary of potential predators from the ground and from above.
