Cooper's/Sharpie


Recommended Posts

Taken yesterday, July 3rd, along Millican Crater Rd in Deschutes County, in the area of the Sisters (about 6500 ft elevation according to google). It's an area with some aspens and fir, though not dense forest and some areas formerly burned.

This is not a great shot (none of them are, it was a good distance away and rather back lit) but the more squared off tail in the first photo and the more rounded looking in this one are giving me some ID consternation. The size at a glance I thought it might've been a Mountain Quail or a grouse, and with the leggy look I was going to go with Sharpie, but the head shape and size makes me think more Cooper's. Anyway, I am terrible with ID for either...so help is appreciated.
