Where have all the ruffed grouse gone

Post by pastorjim08 »

A few years back there were some members who posted ruffed grouse on their drumming logs every year. I haven't seem those in a while. Is anyone still photographing them? Those were some of my faves.

Here in Pennsylvania our ruffed grouse population has collapsed -- apparently they're very susceptible to West Nile Virus. Their population is characterized by boom and bust cycles anyway, but this is a real bust and it may take quite a while for the population to evolve significant resistance to the virus.
