Only 4 Grouse counted for this years CBC count for the State of CT– and they are
still on the States Hunting list? They need our help! Please call your State rep
and tell them to take this declining bird off the States list of accepted hunted
game birds! 4 birds seen in the entire State covered by 694 people birding the
whole day is just unacceptable!
40 years ago – 252 Grouse, this year 4 – Why can't our State see, and do
something about this???
