Greater Sage-grouse Photos
Pictures of Greater-Sage Grouse. These are taken during the course of our research. We have permits from local wildlife agencies to sit on the lek in a blind for our research. To minimize our impact on natural behaviors, we arrive in the blind before the birds arrive at the lek and we leave after the last birds leave. If you're interested in seeing a sage-grouse lek, contact the local state wildlife office and they'll be able to direct you to a lek you can view without disturbing the birds. Sage-grouse populations are declining throughout their range and leks are where the reproduction happens, so please be careful not to disturb the birds!Photos © Gail Patricelli, Please ask permission for use.
