Greater Sage-Grouse


(Centrocercus urophasianus)

Greater Sage-Grouse is best seen on a lek, where varying numbers of males put on an early-morning showy display to compete for the attention of females. The birds strut and puff out their air sacs, sometimes to a frankly comical extent that has to be seen to be believed. Greater Sage-Grouse display (video).
