We Were hiking on Manning Park’s Frosty Mountain Trail and about 4 kms in we encountered a bird. I am guessing he chose what he thought was a great nesting area until all us hikers started going by. Poor guy was very agitated and made it clear we were not welcome. We did our best to get by as quickly and quietly as possible but he chased us for a good 200 meters on our way down. I am curious what type of bird. I had assumed he was a grouse but seemed bigger than the grouse I knew growing up in northern BC and he was much darker brown and grey with yellow on his beak and eyes. My apologies if this is a vague description and I am assuming this was the male and the female was hidden with the nest. Any ideas? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
