Ruffed Grouse Alights On To Feeder Platform In Ontario
We can think of one thing that Ruffed Grouse will be thankful for this holiday season—that they're not a turkey! Even so, Ruffed Grouse are immensely popular game birds within their region. This has led to regulations on season length, bag limits, and area closures, as well as to extensive efforts to improve habitat through management practices that encourage early successional forest. For example, the Ruffed Grouse Society partners with government agencies in programs to expand grouse habitat through land purchases and targeted management.
