In furtherance of ruffed grouse, Leah Simcisko of Exceptional Eye Photography shared a video in the Exploring PA Parks & Forests Book of Faces of one fully ruffed. Quite impressive.
My trivia question from last week kind of worried me. When I asked what the famous drumming grouse drums ON, I had read one particular and very surprising answer. But each email that came in gave the same response: a low log, stump, or rock. Hmmm. Then, Janet from Coraopolis, who's been a reader and member for a long time now came in with the answer I had read. They drum on the air!
Now I imagine they stand on a low log, stump, or rock to perform but, as you will see from this video, the actual drumming is the beat of his wings on air. Way to go, Janet!
As for the April contest, our randomly selected winner is Teresa of Windber, practically a neighbor as I told her!
