Observation details

Adult female with 4 young birds. They were near the summit of Mt. Abercrombie at about the 7000 ft. elevation mark, well above the timberline and in the clear, rocky portion of the mountain. The habitat is a former burned area, and the birds were foraging on wild huckleberries. I have had difficulty determining whether these are Ruffed or Dusky, but the habitat does seem to point more toward Dusky.
