Ruffed Grouse

Visit our keyboard shortcuts docs for details
Duration:
39 seconds

A male ruffed grouse claims his territory in the forest near Mammoth Hot Springs. During this ritual display, the grouse beats its wings in a series of thumps that builds to a resonant crescendo, the bird's wings blurring with speed. Headphones recommended. Natural sounds only: no narration.
