Grouse Drum

Date: April 14, 2021 - May 12, 2021

Time: All Day

Event Description

In the spring male ruffed grouse “drum” to attract females. The drum sounds like someone repeatedly trying to pull start an outboard motor. The effect is caused by the grouse beating its wings against the air. While the sound is distinctive, it can be hard to pinpoint the bird which blends in with pre-spring forest.
