    Since posting this article, I received an email from DEC stating that “spruce grouse have always been present along Blue Mountain Road in low numbers.”

  2. This is good news. This bird is nicknamed the ”
    Fool chicken ” for good reasons. They can be very dumb. However, they are also the mascot for Pamona College teams.

    I hope they didn’t bring any “winter ticks” with them from Maine and they infect our Adirondack moose. This is prime moose habitat with plenty of moose in the area.

    The one and only Spruce Grouse that I’ve ever seen was near Rocky Falls in the 70’s.
