Grouse medicine can be imagined like a whirlpool or a tornado with the spiral taking one to the center. Going to the center will allow for a personal vision or enlightenment of some kind.

The Greater Prairie Chicken or Pinnated Grouse, Tympanuchus cupido, is a large bird in the grouse family. This North American species was once abundant, but has become extremely rare or extinct over much of its range due to habitat loss.

Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus) -- 20" (51cm) The shy, subtly plumaged birds of western pine and fir forests know as Blue Grouse were split into two species in 2006. The Pacific coastal species, Sooty Grouse (D. fuliginosus), lacks whitish markings above and has fewer rectrices that the interior species, Dusky Grouse. The two differ in courtship displays, but both are most easily located by the male's display calls in the spring.
