Today’s post features a bird that likes to hide among the rocks of Mt. Evans, in Colorado. The White-tailed Ptarmigan wears a great coat of feathers that hides him against the rocks as he forages … in the summer months. However, in winter, that coat changes to a white coat that hides him in the snow! Thus, quite difficult to spot one, anytime of the year! Here are a couple of my favorite images:
As you can see, he hides quite well!
