    This thing, I'm assuming, got caught in the huge winds and crashed into the side of the house last night. We found it dead this morning.

    Kind of looks like a dog or coyote got the back of it? Maybe that is what spooked it in the middle of the night?

    I THINK it is a ruffed grouse.

    I agree, looks like a Ruffed Grouse. Must have been some crazy winds to throw a bird around like that!! Wonder if an owl had it and it broke loose and smashed into the wall.
