Edition Size: Artist Hand Signed and numbered Limted Edition, COA included. Medium: Giclee on Canvas About the Art: To me this is one of the most beautiful birds we have in British Columbia. Its feathers
are not brilliant hues of red or blue or yellow like some other birds but if you look closely
at my painting, you will be as amazed as I am at the intricacy and perfection of the patterns.
I assume that these colours and patterns are for camouflage since the Ruffed Grouse spends
most of its time on the ground in high grass or underbrush or on low tree branches. It does not
need long wings for extended flight as do most other birds and in fact the wings are rather
rounded like a tennis racquet and they beat very quickly compared to most other birds, especially
when escaping from danger. Even in flight the sound of the wings thrashing rapidly through the
air is easily heard. They are shy birds and so few people get the chance to see them or hear them.
In order to attract females in the mating season, the male will stand tall with feathers all fluffed
up and flap his wings to create loud “BOOM” sounds in quick succession just like a drummer
banging on his bass drum. One day you may be fortunate enough to hear these sounds echoing
through the forest or woodland and you will know that somewhere nearby there is a beautiful
male Ruffed Grouse putting on a dazzling show for the ladies.
