The intent of this project was to collect Brachylecithum orfi from ruffed grouse in the vicinity of Grand Teton National Park. Ruffed grouse were looked for during the period of 13-28 July, 1969, along Pilgrim Creek, Pacific Creek, north of Two Ocean Lake, and along Ditch Creek; no birds were taken during this period. It seems likely that if it is desirable to pursue this study, other approaches must be tried to adequetely sample the ruffed grouse population, perhaps at a more favorable season of the year. What comes to mind would involve the collection of the birds by National Forest Biologists and efforts will be made to see if some cooperative arrangment can be worked out. Project Number 167.
