No, they are called ruffed grouse. A "roughed grouse" is a grouse that takes a full choke load of 7 1/2 shot at 5 yards.I use the term, since that what they are. But it’s not common to hear, for sure.
I’ve lived in places where they most often were called partridge, and saying “roughed grouse“ would get a stare or comment. But that’s what they are, roughed grouse.
Speaking of which, last elk archery I saw about 60 roughed grouse and about 10 blue or mountain grouse. This year, same area hunted, 2 roughed and 1 mountain grouse.
No, and thanks, I got enough bird watching paperwork from the 2021/2022 Christmas Bird Count.It was stuffed and in a museum. Does that count?
No can do on the stuffed Ivorybill, but I did get a picture of an eagle stealing a buddy's trout while he was napping a few days ago. Would that help?No, and thanks, I got enough bird watching paperwork from the 2021/2022 Christmas Bird Count.
You could take a pic, Photoshop the Ivory-billed and send it to me. I can insert the pic in some quakie tree pic try to enter it in the Christmas Bird Count.
