ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at the population of ruffed grouse in New York. The Breeding Bird Survey revealed a five percent annual decline in the number of ruffed grouse from 1966 to 2007. Landscape changes is said to influence the availability of young forests and habitat for ruffed grouse. Information on a research project launched by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to investigate ruffed grouse harvest mortality is given. The author concludes that mortality of ruffed grouse is associated with nest and brood survival.
