Grouse or Pheasant? This little lady surprised me jumping down from a nearby garage roof onto our back parking lot. She was beautiful but not alone for long.

A trio of magpies soon arrived to squawk at her but she held her own just fine.

My fear is that there is a nest nearby and this IS NOT the ideal location for it. Heavy car traffic, nearby construction and those pesky magpies are ever present.

Pretty neat, though....

Do you know which bird it is? I looked them up online and at least to me, they looked similar.....

 She wandered around the parking lot for a while....
