North American ruffed grouse

This video from North America is called Ruffed Grouse Drumming.

Ruffed Grouse and Aspen Groves

Why are Ruffed Grouse numbers in decline?

In spring, the loud, wing-thumping of male Ruffed Grouse brings new life to northern forests across the continent. These handsome, wily birds reside in the forest year round, and while their numbers rise and fall cyclically, they average nearly seven million. Still, Audubon lists Ruffed Grouse among the Top 20 Common Birds in Decline due to habitat loss.
