I was up at my lake house in Lempster, (NH) this weekend and was surprised to hear Ruffed Grouse drumming (3x).  I thought it was a very confused individual, or maybe a young male practicing for next spring.  But, after researching it, I found a website (Ruffed Grouse Soc) that stated they drum all year round, but just do it more frequently in the springtime.
