This was my first Dusky Grouse ever, in fact I had never even heard of a Dusky Grouse. Taken late in the day at the Nat. Bison Range 30 mi. south of Polson, Montana on Aug. 30, 2012. Camera Nikon CoolPix P510. These guys hard to shoot, they just keep walking up the side of the hill. He just happend to stop for a sec. as I was shooting at hi speed cont.
Redfish: A few years ago, the Blue Grouse was split into two species: Dusky and Sooty Grouse. We reported on the change here: www.birdwatchingdaily.com/.../Success%20for%20Snowy%20Plovers%20nest-destroying%20cows%20hope%20for%20Red%20Knots%20and%20two%20new%20grouse.aspx
