    Funny how it goes.. I thought I was going to have an eventful day, and ended up with a cool memory. Thats why I Like photography and getting out doors so much.

    Awesome, I love these guys.

    I used to hunt with a female sparrowhawk (European equivalent to the coops) when I was living in Ireland 16 years ago.

    Thats my most wanted 15 for the USA
    It's been at least 40 years since I've seen either a Greater Prairie Chicken, or a Ptarmigan - saw both in mid & northern Saskatchewan, but haven't been back there since.

    I understand populations of these birds have become sparser in their Canadian habitats as the years have passed, but I expect you could still spot some in the Prairies of our country - summer/fall for the Prairie Chicken, to winter for Ptarmigan.

    Have no idea where you'd find Ptarmigan in the U.S. - perhaps northern Minnesota - parts of Michigan - perhaps the Dakotas. As for Prairie chicken, maybe the grain fields of areas like Wisconsin & surrounding states ?
