Ruffed Grouse Breaking Away Over a Wood and Stone Retaining Wall
Painted: 1985 Published: 1985
We have startled the ruffed grouse from the dense underbrush, and they break cover with a great rush of beating wings. Before veering away and again disappearing into the woods, we can clearly see their distinctive reddish brown fan shaped tails and dark neck ruffs. They will quickly disappear from sight, leaving us with only a blurred image and a beautiful view across the valley.
