Today while feeding birds a game hen made a 150 foot flight that was L-shaped with two roughly equal legs. She appeared to consider me as a landing point but reconsidered and almost landed on piece of fence where she almost hovered before powering back into trimmed out flight for last leg covering a distance of about 75 feet. This all to avoid contact with snow. Same hen was also prone to make such flights rather than walk through or around high weed patches.
