Observations

  1. Number observed: 40

    Comments: Along Scotch Creek Road above and below Happy Hill Road. Counted by twos when flocks flushed. Chorus of "took took took" calls from birds feeding in water birch. While we paused at the stop sign at the base of happy Hill Road, a flock of 32 grouse flew in from upstream. About 15 minutes later a total of 40 or more grouse flew out of the water birch and brush along the stream up into the poplars across from Happy Hill Road. At one point, about 15 of the grouse were feeding in the crown of the same water birch in which the two owls were perched.
