Many birds in the B.C. Interior are beginning to breed as the weather gets warmer and the Dusky Grouse is no different.

In this week’s episode of Wild Wednesday, you’ll catch a rare glimpse of a Dusky Grouse attempting to attract potential mates with their colourful displays.

These birds even have the ability to change the colour of their eye-patches from orange to yellow, says WildSafeBC.
