K’ahba (ptarmigan). I had so much fun the other afternoon taking photos of these guys. I knew there were ptarmigan in the area from all the tracks, so I headed out to find them. I ended up floundering through waste deep snow while ptarmigan scampered across the top. But eventually they huddled down and pretended to be snow drifts and I had the chance to get some really nice photos. K’ahba is the Dene word for ptarmigan.
