Food in the Alleghenys
Grouse in the Alleghenys have a wealth of food to choose from. Over the years I've enjoyed opening the crops of shot grouse to see just what they were feeding on. Grapes, black birch buds, and greens (small green leafed plants usually growing along streams and spring seeps) have been the favorite food. At one time or another I've found the following fruits in grouse crops I've shot.
