Sharp-tailed Grouse

This wonderful bird is very easy to see if you know where they display. Some organizations provide observation blinds at grouse display “leks.” The Friends of the Bird Sanctuary puts up a small blind at the lek near Solon Springs, Wisconsin: that’s where my recordings and photos of displaying birds were made. These grouse are declining because of loss of grassland habitat.
