> It is more likely that loss of habitat is playing a much larger role in population decline in Ruffed Grouse. Much like Northern Bobwhite, which require a complex mixture of habitats, Ruffed Grouse needs early successional forest habitat. While we have a good deal of forest habitat in CT, it tends to have abrupt boundaries with farmland, residential, or municipal habitat. Without significant habitat management efforts, Ruffed Grouse may go the way of Northern Bobwhite in CT.
