Ptarmigan on Dimond Blvd.
Well I was talking to a family friend the other day who spends summers in Anchorage, but usually lives in Cold Bay. They said as they were at a stop light on Dimond Blvd, a bird flew right in front of their car and landed on the sidewalk, they glanced over at it, and a Ptarmigan was strutting its stuff right there in the middle of all the going ons!
I was amazed and thought that I would share. (Im guessing it was trying to get down and out of this nasty weather that we've been having) ...
