Just got back from a Father and Sons Campout with my son and my father. I always enjoy those father-son bonding moments. The campsite is a few miles up the mountain and west of Banks, Idaho. I didn't even know you could go up the mountain on that side of the Payette River, but there is some nice country up that way. This morning, Kyle and I took a leisurely drive on Grandpa's 4-wheeler up the road and we had a grouse slowly walking right in front of us. I watched it for some time and took lots of notes. When I got back to camp I checked the field guide and it was most certainly a Ruffed Grouse. Life bird #325. We saw 32 other species as well with the highlights being Stellar's Jay, Townsend's Warbler, Red-breasted Nuthatch, and loads of Chipping Sparrows. We also came across four adult Canada Geese and about eight little goslings along the creek way up in the mountains.
