  1. I’m thinking it’s a dusky grouse, but I don’t have my book with me.

  2. Spruce Grouse (Falcipennis canadensis)

  3. yep. and a VERY fat one at that …..

  4. Spruce Grouse, not Dusky Grouse

  5. its a ptarmigan

  6. I have a video of it doing a mating call and dance. Woke me and Dez up at 6am when we were camping at Gwichin last summer, and it was RIGHT outside our tent. hahaha
