I photographed this female Sooty Grouse two years ago. I didn't get a photo today, but I heard two male Sooty Grouses hooting or trumpeting in their deep calls that carry a long distance. Amazing!

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.
