Just came from a walk at the Rouge Park and would like to put under your consideration a Spruce Grouse observation. The bird, when I saw it, was perched on a dead branch near to the top of a tree. The area, a section of the Cedar Trail, contains a dense stand of diverse conifers. The observation happened around 7-7:30 pm and I got a good view of the bird. After a minute of observation, it went down quietly between the branches.
I know the species is fairly common more to the north of this area, for example at Algonquin, but this just happened and I wanted to send it for your consideration.
