Here in SEAZ we had the best winter rains in years! It looks like Scalies and Gambels are paired and in fair numbers. I am seeing MANY singles and pairs of roadrunners though, way worse to quail than raptors. I wonder what I can do?

That’s a good article. There is a similar thought that wild turkeys decimate ruffed grouse chicks but none of the research I’ve seen supports that.
That's not the problem. Turkey destroy the food the grouse need to survive and not just by eating it they turn the ground like rototiller which in turn kills the plant altogether.
I hate turkeys!

There were a trail cams set up on Grouse nests years ago and they caught turkeys killing the chicks. Those photos are impossible to find now, as if they got removed from the web. Maybe someone didn’t want the turkeys becoming more of a target. All I know is when the turkeys came the Grouse left, in many places.
