Recovery Plan Announced for Endangered Spruce Grouse
A new “Vermont SpruceGrouse Recovery Plan” wasannounced recently by VermontAgency of Natural ResourcesSecretary Deb Markowitz. Theplan to restore a self-sustainingpopulation of the “State-Endangered” spruce grouse inVermont is based on informationcollected and reviewed by stateand private scientists workingtogether over several decades.“I want to thank our state wild-life biologists and members of Vermont’s Bird ScientificAdvisory Group for producing acomprehensive and long-neededSpruce Grouse Recovery Plan forVermont,” said Markowitz. “Ournative spruce grouse are part of Vermont’s natural heritage and an indicator species forthe health of the spruce-fir forest, a unique habitat thatmany other wildlife rely on for survival.”Spruce grouse
) inhabit theboreal forests of North America. Although consideredcommon in Canada, Alaska and Maine, in Vermont thespecies is near the southern edge of its range. Historicalaccounts show that spruce grouse were present innortheastern Vermont during the mid-1800s. Extensivetimber cutting since then resulted in removal of muchof their breeding habitat and dramatic declines in theirnumbers.Vermont’s current breeding spruce grouse popula-tion exists in lowland black spruce wetlands and mixedspruce-balsam fir-larch habitat in northern EssexCounty. Most of the area where the birds are found isowned by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and theVermont Fish and Wildlife Department. Periodic sur-veys between 1991 and 2003 suggested a stable popu-lation of 150 to 300 adult spruce grouse existed in thearea, but surveys conducted since then indicate theremay be a decline in numbers.“The Bird Scientific Advisory Group was pleasedwith the collaborative approach with which this docu-ment was created,” said Mark LaBarr, ConservationProgram Manager for AudubonVermont. “The process was thor-ough and inclusive and produceda document that will guide futuremanagement actions. We lookforward to the day when sprucegrouse can join osprey and pere-grine falcon as a recovered spe-cies in Vermont.”Biologists believe the biggestthreats to the existing sprucegrouse population would be wide-spread fire or diseases that wouldreduce habitat or directly affectthe birds.Full recovery of spruce grousein Vermont will require the estab-lishment of two additional popula-tions, most likely on state lands inVictory and Granby (southernEssex County), and in Norton (northern EssexCounty).The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department beganrestoring spruce grouse into Victory Basin in 2008 with24 birds captured in Maine and 15 from Quebec. In2009 and 2010, an additional 95 birds were brought infrom Maine and Quebec, bringing the total to 134grouse stocked in Victory Basin.Spruce grouse in Vermont may be downlisted to“Threatened” status if, on average for five years, thereare at least two self-sustaining populations, each withat least 30 nesting females, and with dispersal betweenpopulations.Removing the spruce grouse from Vermont’s“Endangered and Threatened Species List” will berecommended if, on average for five years, there are atleast three self-sustaining populations, each with atleast 30 nesting females, and with dispersal betweenpopulations.The Vermont Spruce Grouse Recovery Plan is onthe Vermont Fish and Wildlife website, www.vtfis-handwildlife.com.
