The ruffed grouse lives abundantly from New Hrunswick to the prairies of the West, from Canada to the Southern States,âkeeping in the South to the high or mountainous lands. It is the most noble and alert of all the grouse family. The shape of its body and the pose of its head indicate robustness, both in walking and flying, and wonderful quickness in observation. Its small crested head turns with constant vigilance, and its full brown eye is e.xpressive of great power of vision, and seems to reflect the landscape immediately after death. Its wings are short and curved, beating the air with great rapidity and giving it an exceedingly rapid flight. Once, breakfasting above New- burgh, on the Hudson, at a country house where heavy plate glass windows extended to the floor, we heard a heavy blow on the window. Running out, we found a cock grouse lying dead on the lawn. A glance at the window revealed the cause ; the room was dark within and the window reflected all the landscape, and the bird crossing over to its covert flew into the mirrored copse with such speed as to kill it instantly. The length of the bird is about eighteen inches,âits full weight twenty-two ounces. Its color is light brown, mottled with darker ])rown or black. It wears a slight crest, which it can elevate at pleasure. Its tail is short and rounded, with a nearly continuous black bar crossing it near the tip. Its legs are feathered with a hairy feather, and are well proportioned,.
