Missouri Mountain Ptarmigan

Collegiate Peaks Wildernes, Colorado | 2020

A ptarmigan in its natural habital high on the slopes of Mount Belford, with a view of Missouri Mountain (14,067 ft.) behind. This momma ptarmigan was vigilantly guarding about six super-cute little baby ptarmigans, but they scurried off before I could snap a photo. Photo © copyright by Jack Brauer.
