Very cool mount, congrats. I just saw my first beared hen this last Friday evening. She was with a small flock of about 8 birds standing on the median of a busy residential street. There is a heavily wooded park for hiking and moutian biking near by so I am hoping to get in that area from mid March to the beging of the season to try and get some photos of her.
Of course this is hard. If it was easy everyone would do it. The HARD is what makes it great!

Scott, Congrats on your fine hen mount.  I took some video two years ago of a bearded hen.  Thought it was a jake at first then saw the brown breast feather and knew other wise.

I like Mark's idea of the droppings lol [:D]

Great idea Mark, I'll have to find some and a couple of feathers to leave on the back of the couch. My 2 setters still don't know what to think of her up there. They sleep on the couch and then jump up and stare at it for a couple of minutes, their eyes are glued to it as they walk past it hoping it'll move [:D]
