What is the State Bird of Pennsylvania?
AUGUST 4, 2015
You are walking on a wooded path in Pennsylvania. No, you have not stumbled upon a WWI re-enactment, but a startled Ruffed Grouse , the state bird of Pennsylvania. Though Pennsylvania is in the southern part of their range, grouse can digest twigs and buds , allowing them to survive winters in the northern United States and throughout Canada. They live in deciduous forests where they are found in Pennsylvania, and prefer early-successional forests.
