Lake Superior: Land of the Woodland Drummer (Ruffed Grouse)

Lake Superior: Land of the Woodland Drummer (Ruffed Grouse)

Lake Superior, the largest of the five Great Lakes, is also the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area, which surrounds a unique and wild archipelago called Isle Royale National Park, a U.S. National Park in the state of Michigan. This area offers some of the most beautiful and exciting wilderness country in North America; so it is no surprise that Michigan native, filmmaker and adventure-lecturer Tom Sterling, who graduated from the University of Michigan as an Interpretive Field Naturalist, chose to document the nature and wildlife of this spectacular environment. Here, beginning in spring, when the "drumming" of the male Woodland Drummer, or Ruffed Grouse, can be heard as he courts the female, we are guided through the seasons into the dark forests filled with Ladyslippers, Arethusa, Ramshead and the Calypso orchid, and see wildlife in its natural state, including bald eagles, river otters, loons, Canada jays, warblers, wolves, the elusive fisher, and a family of bears. 04/10DE JSCA 84 min.
