INTRODUCTION:
This is a brief summary of observations of sooty (coastal) blue grouse in SE Alaska (2007) and north-coastal British Columbia (2008). MAS and FCZ worked in the Juneau area in 2007 (9-14 May): G. F. Barrowclough (GFB) and J. Lai, both of the American Museum of Natural History, and MAS, worked in the Stewart, Terrace, Kitimat, and Bella Coola areas in 2008 (14-24 May). FCZ did not take part in the field in 2008 for medical reasons. Plans to work east of Smithers in 2008 were cancelled because of time constraints and difficult access caused by heavy snow packs.
