I was out on our local bike path when this grouse came out of the woods and started pecking at my shoes and pants legs. It managed to untie both my boots and pursued me at least 100 feet down the path, making soft chicken-like noises. My guess is that my boots were similar in color and size to another grouse, which needed to be chased out of its territory. It was wonderful to get so close to what is usually a very shy game bird.
