Blue Grouse occur in mature and second growth forests, from the dry forests of the southern interior to the subalpine Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir forests, as well as forest openings and edges, including logged or burned areas, meadows, and open plateaus (Campbell et al. ). In southernFile Size: 35KB. Population Status: Greater sage-grouse populations across most of their range have been experiencing long-term population declines since the mids. It has been estimated that the number of sage-grouse in the s and 70s were double or triple current numbers, depending on the region investigated. Annual survival and population cycles. Annual survival. Most black grouse mortaility is caused by predation. Depending on the region, this can be mainly from raptors such as goshawks Accipter gentilis, but also mammalian predators such as foxes Vulpes vulpes and mustelids (martens Martes spp. or stoats Mustela spp.). Annual survival varies between population. The blue grouse is 15 to 21 inches in length. The male blue grouse is gray to bluish-gray with a red to yellow-orange comb over its eyes. It has a yellow neck sac surrounded by white. The female is spotted brown with a dark tail. Male blue grouse in the rockies have a red neck sac instead of a yellow one. - .

Many adult, and to a lesser degree juvenile, sage-grouse brought into captivity are flighty and stressed, which leads to high mortality (Remington ratesand. Greater sage grouse genetics are varied across its range and captive breeding could disrupt that, he said.

Blue grouse (Dendragapus obscurus) on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, have provided the material for one of North America’s longest studies of grouse population the investigation initiated by Fowle (, ) and carried on largely by Bendell (, a,b), Zwickel (, ), and associates reached a crossroad that became graphic only in retrospect.

Population biology Seasonal movements and home range Sage grouse display a variety of annual migratory patterns (BeckWallestadHuletBerry and EngConnelly et al,Wakkinen.

A landowner desiring to manage for ruffed grouse should have control over at least 80 – acres of forest and make at a minimum acre openings (5 – 10 acres would be better) to have an impact on grouse habitat.

These patches should be rotated throughout the tract on a 60 – 80 year cycle. Grouse have the reputation of being nature’s untouchables. General consensus dictates that if you take a grouse of any colour or species out of the wild, it will quickly fade and die. What I saw on Friday showed that not only can you keep birds in captivity, but they can actively thrive, breed productively and go from strength to strength.

The Sooty Grouse is endemic to mountainous regions in western North America from south-coastal Alaska and northwestern British Columbia south to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California and westernmost Nevada ().Formerly considered the coastal subspecies of the Blue Grouse, recent DNA evidence supported a split of the Blue Grouse into two species, the Sooty Grouse and the Dusky Grouse.

In fact, new science confirms that most grouse leave tree-infested lands, and birds that do remain, suffer high mortality rates. Unsurprisingly, these impacts extend to big game populations, degrading the hunting experience for.

And this period happens to be when grouse, the game bird of which the British are so proud, are at their best. Grouse shooting, which marks the beginning of the game season, begins on 12 August (the Glorious Twelfth as it is known – except by the grouse) although the birds are never at their best until 10 to 14 days have elapsed.

The ten currently recognized species of grouse in North America have played an important role in America’s history, from the famous but ill-fated heath hen, a primary source of meat for the earliest New England immigrants, to the ruffed grouse, currently one of the most abundant and soughtafter upland game birds in more than 40 states and provinces.
