I too had a grouse doing the broken wing act this morning. The buckthorn was so thick I couldn't see the chicks but I could tell by her broken wing act she had some. The ferns and grass were wet so I just hustled out of there so she could get back with them to brood them when necessary.Was after the turkeys this AM, no luck, back out again later on. But came across mamma grouse and a bunch of chicks. Pretty cool the way mom acts wounded to draw you away from the chicks. Hope they make it.
