Grouse Attack

fighting cocks

Friends, sometimes the dancing of the Sharptail Grouse winds up in a confrontation, these two have come together head to head.  After bluffing by jumpin at each other, one grouse launches into the air and comes down in an attack on the grouse who stays on the ground.  never seen any bloodshed, but they sometimes shake themselves and turn away.  I know it is blurred, but that was done intentionally to show the action, til Tomorrow MJ
