In 2006 the previous classification of “blue grouse” was divided into two separate species – dusky grouse and sooty grouse. As shown in this image of a male dusky grouse, during breeding season the courtship display includes bobbing his head, spreading his tail feathers and making hooting calls, as well as displaying his neck patch erectile eyebrows.
