Well Rick, if you are indeed a lucky guy and want to return to Ecuador
with fond memories of wading through deep snow while getting a sore
neck looking high into the conifers, check out Ebird. On their
website http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ select "Explore Data" and
you get,

http://ebird.org/ebird/eBirdReports?cmd=Start select "Range and
Point Maps" and you get,

http://ebird.org/ebird/map/ Type in the species "Sooty Grouse".
Just to the right of the "Species" is "Date". Open that and do a
custom date range of 2006 (the year of the split) to 2013. Also
select the two months Feb to Mar. Click "date range", and you get,

http://ebird.org/ebird/map/soogro1?neg=true&env.minX=135.69597537808198&env.minY=13.23170897445491&env.maxX=-30.593087121918018&env.maxY=69.95753964664658&zh=true&gp=false&mr=on&bmo=2&emo=3&yr=on&byr=2006&eyr=2013

Zero in on Puget Sound until the blue drops show up. Not much there.
Only a dozen or so within three hours of SEATAC. If you open each one
and look at the sighting's checklist there is a good chance you will
get a map with coordinates.

Hurricane Ridge might be as good as it gets. Maybe Shawneen Finnegan
or Bill Tweit could give you some tips on that..

This works for owls too.

What you got for Black Swifts in Ecuador?
