Grouse

Prairie grouse, like most other prairie wildlife, are dependent on their eyes for safety. You’ll find them sitting where they can see, even if the cover is thinner. And since the wind is always present on the prairie, they’ll often take shelter from it on the downwind side of a ridge, especially if that spot offers a good view. Only when the sun’s heat is oppressive will they head for thick cover that offers shade.
