Re: Instinct or Learned Ability - by the Grouse.
How big would a Grouses brain have to be, to reason?
Some people think Dogs can not reason, I am not one of those people however. I believe God gave most creatures the ability to reason & instincts to survive, especially
wild creatures like a Grouse. I do believe they must learn
as they mature however, and many perish before they learn, and become fully mature. Very few Grouse fly in a straight line for any distance when threatened, was this learned or instinctive. A mature Grouse sets up a safety zone and relocates when the zone is breached, usually the mature Grouse will walk off and set up another safety zone, young Grouse have not learned to reset the safety zone and these are the Grouse that most Grouse hunters gun. I actually believe a Grouse developes as it matures, it actually learns
many different things as it matures, the same as a gun dog
learns thru repeat experiences.
Never care about what other people believe, be strong and walk in the way of the Lord.
