The most amazing thing - Hal and I arrived home about 12:30 pm to find a Ruffed Grouse sitting at the ridgeline of Toad Hall, one of our two living structures (we live in Badger House, but trust me, both are VERY modest buildings tucked away here in the woods).
Anyway, as we were eating lunch, we heard drumming. Didn't actually see it that time but then started to watch and between us did indeed see three separate drumming episodes, all at the top of our roof! Wow! Both of us native Vermonters well over 60 and though having heard this many times over the years, never before have seen this until today on our roof! Double wow!
