Sage Grouse are the largest of all North American grouse, and are well known for their courtship displays which they perform each spring on communal leks or strutting grounds. These leks are generally open clearings in the surronding sagebrush, often on a small knoll. Birds will start flying into these leks in complete darkness, at least 1/2 hour before any hint of sunrise. The dominant males at the center of the lek will mate with the majority of the females. |MC3-0443
