Ruffed Grouse 2
Last year I found one ruffed grouse that is very tolerant of people. He would let me get close without a blind. Last week a late spring snowstorm dropped 6 inches of wet heavy snow on the North Shore. When I checked to see if this particular male had survived another year, the snow didn’t seem to bother the grouse at all. He couldn’t find his log so he was drumming on top of a snow drift.
