GROUSE GUESTS

Farm & Ranch Living - - FEEDBACK - CATHERINE SWENSON

I en­joyed the “Life with Mil­dred” story in your Oc­to­ber/Novem­ber 2017 is­sue. I had a sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ence with a grouse that stayed with us for nearly a year and a half. My neigh­bor also had the same type of fre­quent vis­i­tor.

But it seems to hap­pen more of­ten than we re­al­ize. Another Ver­mon­ter, Vi­vian Miller Moore, penned a book, Paddy: A Ruffed Grouse Chooses

Our Farm, about her winged friend.

And Gar­diner Bump, along with a few oth­ers, stud­ied these cu­ri­ous birds in New York state dur­ing the 1930s. They chron­i­cled their find­ings in The Ruffed Grouse: Life His­tory, Prop­a­ga­tion, Man­age­ment.
