Willow Ptarmigan (4) (Lagopus lagopus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1407) (Comments - 3797)
Canada (Québec) Val-d'Or – I was going through some of my trip files from northern Quebec earlier this month and recall the conditions when we found the ptarmigan. It was rough, a far cry from where we are today thankfully. Discovering a flock close to the road on the second day, after hours of searching was a thrill I'll always remember.

Canada (Québec) Val-d'Or – We failed to find any the first day but got really lucky the next. This is a popular species for hunters and since regional hunters have to travel hundreds of km north in normal years, this year they are taking advantage of it close to home. That means birds close to the road are prime targets so they are slowly declining within 75 km of some towns.

Canada (Québec) Val-d'Or - I made a trek in search of ptarmigan, perhaps my most wanted bird. This winter there has been a major irruption in Quebec, south of their normal range. It is the largest movement in 40 years and undoubtedly involves thousands of individuals. Normally the area from Val-d'Or to north of Amos has one or two if any. Still, we had a hard time finding them but in some locations there were numerous tracks alerting us to their presence.

Sooty Grouse (2) (Dendragapus fuliginosus) User: lou_dav  (See all photos - 1098) (Comments - 742)
Canada (British Columbia) Whistler Olympic Park - ski jumping venue. The cameramen were feeding this bird before the competition started. This is a lifer for me. It is probably a Willow Ptarmigan based on bill size and a female based on plumage, but I need Chris to add to the species list.
