Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Two species of grouse live in Texas

 Pity the poor Capercaillie, a large grouse found in Sweden. This bird feeds its young pine needles, which makes its meat taste like turpentine.

Alas for the grouse, the Swedes soak the bird in sour milk to get rid of the unpleasant taste.  (How they get rid of the sour milk taste is not explained.)


They needed someone with an infant to play Mary at our town’s annual Nativity Scene. This photo has always intrigued me … not sure what the bright thing is over my shoulder. But I know it ain’t dust. (Photo by Jennifer Kabay)
