Ruffed Grouse, Bald Eagle

I was hoping to find Great Horned Owls today, but didn't have any luck. A friend of mine found two outside of Hartland a few weeks ago. Here is one of the pictures he got; http://birdingnewbrunswick.ca/photo/dscn3615?xg_source=activity
We were out a logging road and I did noticed two Ruffed Grouse. I haven't seen one in a while so it was nice to find two, up a tree of course!

On our way there and back, there were two Bald Eagles perched in a tree. There were lots of branches in the way, so we couldn't get a clear shot. It was enough to just watch them together like that and wasn't worth scaring them off. It was as if they were trying to keep each other warm and no wonder if that was the case!
