A mother grouse has attacked me before, except I didn’t see it coming. It scared the crap out of me because it made this loud crazy sounding hiss. I ended up beating it out of the air with my pole without thinking about it. I felt really bad about possibly killing a mother grouse that was only trying to protect her young. Oh well, I guess its a lesson learned. Great pic by the way!
