Sharp-tailed Grouse 001
One of our annual spring trips is to photograph the male sharp-tailed grouse performing their courtship dance. Each spring males gather in a grassy area called a lek. They use the same area year after year.
A local farmer lets us go into his field and photograph the grouse. After several days of dancing the females pick the best displaying males for their mate. You can easily see why they are called sharp-tailed grouse.
