On February 12, 1978, at about 4:00 p.m., we flushed two Ruffed Grouse (Bonasa umbel Ius) from corn stubble in northeastern Tuscaloosa County, north of Little Tyro Creek and west of Sandtown (Section 5, Township 17 S, Range 9 W). The field in which the birds were foraging was about two acres in size and was nearly half a mile from the nearest publ i c road. The field was completely surrounded by second growth pines (Pinus virginiana and P. taeda) and was on a ridge in very steep terrain.
