grouse crop question?

What do u see in here?

I'm guessing cherry buds? Not sure on the leaves. My close hunting buddy sent me this.

Re: grouse crop question?

Looks like Birch buds and another type of buds, could be cherry.

Also see 2-3 different types of greens.

I'm decent with plants and weeds in lawns and gardens, but I cannot ID those without a chart to go by. Hopefully Eric Miller or someone else can help.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

Re: grouse crop question?

Except in the dead of winter, I think I've only ever shot one grouse that didn't have some sort of greenery in the crop, along with the buds, catkins, berries, etc. I just call it "green stuff"!! The bird who's crop was devoid of "green stuff" was filled with, of all things, wild mushrooms. Never saw that before or since.
