Some say the Ruffed Grouse is not the sharpest tool in the shed, but that doesn't take anything away from its individuality. The Ruffed Grouse is mainly a ground dwelling, game bird. It is interesting that I never really search for this bird, but they just seem to pop up here and there. I am always delighted.
Even though summer birding is winding down, the opportunities to see and photograph this bird will remain constant as the Ruffed Grouse is a year-round resident of this province.
