    Details: This is a very quiet recording of soft 'cluck’s, 'peep’s, 'ent's and several varied wails from a talkative family group of 7-8 Sooty Grouse. This group was slowly walking as they grazed on various leafy vegetation at ground level. I suspect that only the closest 2-3 individuals made it on to the media. All individuals appeared full-grown but none of the vocalists were positively aged or sexed. Entire flock was within 10 meters of the recorder and one bird was as close as a meter but none seemed too disturbed by our proximity. These birds exhibited two types of vocalizations: a soft domestic-chicken-like clucking and a several types of quiet vibratory wailing whistles superficially similar to a Pigeon Guillemot, Varied Thrush or a Montezuma Quail in quality. This recording was made with an iPhone 5s with the built-in microphone and the Røde Rec application. This recording has not been modified in any manner. There is some talking by the recordist. 0:19 Red-breasted Nuthatch Wails 0:00 (overlapping wails from perhaps 3 birds.), 0:36 wailing, 0:42 recordist said “there is one right here” as one began to move from a hiding spot in a bush a meter away. This bird then began a series of wails, peeps and clucks that continued through the remainder of the recording. Chicken-like Clucking 0:02 (descending note followed by series of 6 clucks), 0:08 (descending note followed by series of 8 clucks), 0:12 (a series of 10 clucks), 0:19 (a raising note followed by a series of 3 clucks), 0:26 (a series of 9 clucks), 0:31 (a series of 9 clucks)
