The vast, vast majority of people stumbling 'pon my site are looking for information about ptarmigans. So here it is:

The State Bird of Alaska.

More of 'em.

OK, now I have some facts:

1st, don't eat ptarmigans. They are nice and besides when did they ever hurt you?

The Sea Ptarmigan was a Dutch cutter that ran aground in Duluth-Superior in 1884, and it carried explosives!

The Sea Ptarmigan was also the name of a famous play.

Owls eat ptarmigans and that's just not cool.

St. Trebuchet is the patron saint of ptarmigans.

More later?
