A sad bulletin from NJF&W. There is nothing quite like the thunderous flush of a grouse.

In the late 70's and early 80's it was still common to find grouse in the pines, especially in the oak cuttings around the cedar swamp edges near where I live now. They are very common in the woods that I hunt in Bradford County Pa. and are a pleasure to watch when I am in my deer stand.

Thunder chickens; I can't remember the last time I had one flush here in NJ. Like PA, upstate NY, NH, ME they are everywhere but they call the Partridge. Used to hunt them walking the logging road and the dog worked the edge's.

EBird link for sightings over the last 10 years. May not work, gets a bit flaky at times.
