and never seen one.
Have a question, is the plural for ptarmigans ptarmigan, like it is for sheep?
Thanks for posting Stephen,
Marc

Hi Marc,
You have me stumped on that one. I don't really know. I did write ptarmigan, rather than ptarmigans, so I take it is pluralised like sheep...... I think!

I suppose it might depend on what you shoot them with/for:) I'd suggest ptarmigans for a camera and ptarmigan for a shotgun. As my English grammar should be much better than my vocabulary, Marc, I hope it won't turn into another pot shot of mine :))

Funny, I never thought of shooting the little things, pot shot or not. I have no doubt they are delicious, but I would rather just look at them. Don't get me wrong, I am a meat eater. But, I'd rather leave the ptarmigans for the cameras only.
Thanks Jacek,
Marc

why "ptarmigans" were not included on Pink
Floyd's "Animals" album. They are truly amazing
birds of a feather.

Sounds like a song suggestion for a comeback. Yeah, I wish!!!
