Walter the friendly grouse becomes man’s backyard companion

In this recent photo by Mary Beth Westward, a wild grouse, who is called "Walter" by their family, sits perched on the shoulder of Todd Westward, Mary Beth's husband, outside their New London, N.H. home. The bird started hanging out in the family's backyard last month and has since made itself a friendly fowl fixture in their yard. (Mary Beth Westward via AP)
