Montana wildlife: Sage grouse

April 09, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Sage grouse are displaying on their leks this month. My first attempt to photograph this spectacle was this weekend using my new blind for the very first time. It was a cold clear morning (-10 C (14 F)) which is typically associated with a good number of sage grouse at the leks. Indeed, at least 25 males were present and although the distance was a few hundred yards they were very audible. I think I'll be back for more!
