Louie Barkley with his wild grouse visitor (video)
Hi Folks, You might remember my good friend Louie Barkley - a regular and popular guest on "Streamside" over the years. Louie has retired and is spending as much of his time fishing as he can. Last year, while he was working on his woodpile behind his home, a ruffed grouse came wandering out of the woods and started hanging around while he worked. This became a frequent occurrence, one thing led to another, and Louie started offering some cracked corn to the bird. He decided to name this regular visitor "C'mere". Eventually, a second bird showed which earned the name "C'mon". The birds now come when he and his wife call them and have become regular visitors to the Barkley backyard.
