On the way in Lisa spotted a rufted grouse on the side of the road. As she
screamed we came to a halt and got out looking for the bird. It hadn't
moved and was still siting beside the road feeding. We were able to get
some great looks at it.

In Catalooche we found a herd of the male elk almost immediately. Later we
found a herd of female elk. Over the course of the afternoon we saw nearly
30 elk. The males were loosing their antlers. During the afternoon we
noticed #4 lost one of its antlers.

We also saw a male rusty blackbird beside a creek. Near the rangers
residence tom the turkey was out feeding near sunset.

Catalooche is a pretty neat place.
