Sooty Grouse of the NW

I think we saw four Sooty Grouses in the Pacific NW.  Two were on a branch fairly high in trees. The Grouse in the bottom two pictures was a mama and was trying to shepherd her babies across the road.  One cooperated; one didn’t have the nerve, apparently.  We watched her try to coax it out of the brush for several minutes, but to no avail.  When we left she was on one side with the timid young one and the other was across the road by itself. ….   Karen C MillerDSC00777DSC01739DSC01740
