What type of bird is that? I'm guessing a woodpecker or pheasant?

Looks like a partridge or a Ruffled Grouse, same thing, to me. These birdsblend into the bush extremely well. Taste good too.

I'd say a prairie chicken or grouse.

Though would be a fun puzzle, for someone else.

Love the picture, though my Peterson Field Guide for western birds doesn't help identify it. It looks like some type of grouse, but that particular one doesn't seem to be shown. I'm amazed you even saw it at all, with all that camouflage.

Ruffed Grouse, Bonasa umbellus,

He is somewhat of a pet around the yard, where he searches for food all day long. He is a wild bird and won't let you get too close, but doesn't fly away, he just runs away instead.

They are one of the best tasting of the upland birds, but since my dog is blind and I don't shoot creatures on our property, he is safe, at least from me.
