In the best-documented case (in the scientific literature) of this type of mass emigration by the northern sharp-tailed grouse, it was reported that in the fall of 1932, small (4 sharp-tailed grouse) and large flocks (> 100) moved steadily through the Moosonee, Ontario, region (western James Bay) for approximately three consecutive weeks (Snyder, 1935).
