Hi Jim and Tweets
Several years ago a friend and I were birding in an area off Cameron Lake Loop Rd. that was partly Ponderosa and partly sagebrush. We heard a dusky grouse calling. We estimated that it was 75 to 100 feet away, and walked over to a convenient flat rock to look down the flats toward where we thought it was. We had been there a brief time and the grouse (it was a Dusky) flushed from under the rock we were standing on. Very definitely ground-based in the sagebrush.
There are other times I have seen Dusky Grouse in sagebrush.
