Description

A large male seen well running across the road on the lower portion of Titlow Hill Road. It then landed in a large douglas fir just below the road and gave views for ~15 seconds before flying out of sight.

The location is rather approximate.

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.
