The Egg was my first venture in traveling. It was a Casita so I named the blog in it's honor.

Good Willow Ptarmigan’s
On the road to Haines, we saw a little spot with a little building and a couple of cars. That was just one of stops on the roadside. Once out of our rigs and ready to go, Liz’s feet got on the trail and she started around the mountain and I started to follow. Then all of a sudden a covey of quail like birds (to me) flew down into the willow trees. My feet turned to the willows and I yelled at Liz that I was following the birds. What I found was a covey of Willow Ptarmigans. I took about 200 photos but I have managed to cull them down.
Here is the lookout.
This guy is checking out the two legged
This guy is quite quiet!
This is why they are called Willow’s.
A real beauty!
Really would like to talk to me! Look at those leg feathers!!!
If you look at the red marks, there is a Willow Pt under it.
