802.359.5000 | WILD BIRD REHAB: x510
If you often take walks through the woods of Vermont, you’ve likely heard the heart-stopping blast-off of a ruffed grouse taking flight from the forest floor. These well-camouflaged birds seem to lie in wait until you are a few feet from them before they suddenly take off, flapping their wings with a thumping ferocity that startles even the most experienced hikers and woodsmen.
We will continue to monitor the progress of the grouse’s keel daily, with hopes it will heal so the bird can be returned to her life in the wild… where she can continue to spook unsuspecting people in the woods.
Thanks for taking care of that beautiful bird. We have 4 ruffed grouse neighbors that have been finishing off the crabapples on our trees. They're really cool to watch. We're trying to figure out how best to supplement their natural diet once the crabapples are gone so they keep coming around.
