They probably finished all the berries inside the bush and now are coming out to eat clover on the side of the roads.... Last year it was opposite - lots of birds before the snow hit the grounds and then - boom! - they were all gone!

Decent #s of grouse where the bearberries and junipers are sticking out above the snow.

I've decided not to bother with grouse this year, since the numbers are so low. Hopefully they are back stronger next year.
