Description

This Sooty Grouse was alone, not near the hen with chicks. It is much darker, not mottled like the hen, and I think it's a male.

Description

Here is a Dendragapus fuliginosus (Sooty Grouse) hen with one of her three chicks, standing in the gravel road on the way to Tunnel Creek. They then flew off into the forest. A couple of weeks ago we heard a male Sooty Grouse with its trumpeting call.

Description from Wikipedia

The Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus) is a species of forest-dwelling grouse native to North America's Pacific Coast Ranges. It is closely related to the Dusky Grouse (Dendragapus obscurus), and the two were previously considered a single species, the Blue Grouse.
