There are numerous Dusky Grouse easily observed at Sun Mountain Lodge. Last night I had a male on the main road coming in just opposite the exit from employee parking. This morning I had a female with 3 chicks and another female with 5 chicks at the main registration building and the first building to the west of that. I also had a single female along Patterson Lake Road right by the lake.
Later on private access/private property along Scotch Creek this morning, we found two Sharp Tailed Grouse in the grasses.
I camped on Thompson ridge Road last night (just off Patterson Lake Road). My best sighting was a young Black Bear which loped across the road maybe 30 yards in front of the car. Also found (heard only) were at least two Common Poorwills, a Flammulated Owl (have had them there before) and at least two Common Nighthawks.
I will be doing a blog post on the trip and will post when complete - with some photos.
