When I lived near Fairbanks, Alaska, I was driving up my drive one day and saw a spruce grouse sitting near the drive. I had my camera with me, and got out of the car to take pictures. Instead of flying or running away, the bird actually started coming toward me! She came to within about 5 feet of me and just stood there looking at me curiously.
