Can you see the very well camouflaged ptarmigan in the middle/right side of this photo?

At first I was looking for a white Ptarmigan, but upon closer look I saw the rock colored bird.
I'm surprised he didn't take flight!

As I was walking all alone up there, I thought I saw something moving in my peripheral visual field. When I looked directly, for less than a second, I was shocked to see a rock moving. I then realized it was a bird. It was so well camouflaged, trying to find it in my camera's view box was hard. I don't know why it did not fly away. It just walked away slowly. Maybe it had no fear of humans.

I wonder how many other ptarmigans I walked by without even knowing.
