From Karen Thompson:
This evening, May 14, at approximately 6:45, at the corner of Roundtop Road and Mountain View Avenue in Warren, a Ruffed Grouse flew from the ground in a deciduous woods on my right across the road directly in front of my car into the woods on the left. I was immediately struck by the size and reddish-brown color of the bird as he passed, and then by the fan-shaped tail with a distinctly dark and wide subterminal band, white narrow terminal band, and otherwise banded tail as he landed. Sadly, I have no photo as he disappeared immediately into the woods, but there is no doubt as to what he was.
