Sage Grouse - Spring Creek Ranch, Jacks
This large species of sage grouse had been in the headlines a bit lately as it has been up for consideration for increased protection under the Endangered Species Act. Grouse are often good subjects for photography as they are relatively tame, but this individual posed for our photo safari participants especially well.

During the month of April we’ll be able to observe the elaborate courtship displays that these birds exhibit on their leks (breeding grounds).
