11328RFI: Sooty Grouse in May
- Apr 10, 2014Greetings,
Twenty years ago I lived in California and saw all the birds there, but
I haven't been back very often.
Now we have a stopover in LA and there is only one target that I can think of :
Is there a reasonable chance for Sooty Grouse on a three-day trip starting
in LA in mid-May ?
The only pointer I have is Glacier Point Road. This will probably, but
not certainly, be open on May 11. But if there is still snow on the
ground, is there a chance of finding a grouse? Are they booming yet ?
I've never been to Yosemite this early in the season.
Any other advice ? Whitney Portal sounds like a lovely place, but there
will probably be too much snow, and it may be too much hiking for me.
