Sage Grouse

Sage Grouse. (Wikipedia)

There’s a reason why Wyoming has the largest concentration of Sage Grouse on the planet. It’s all about the sagebrush, and there is plenty of that dietary staple of the Sage Grouse, right here in the Cowboy State. They are commonly called sage hens, or sage chicken, but it’s the Sage Grouse that we’re talking about here.

And are they ever the showmen. It’s the male of the species that combines “strutting” and “drumming” to create one of the most spectacular mating rituals in the animal kingdom. These impressive birds, brown, black and white in color, fan their feathers and literally dance to their own unique sounds. These rituals of the Sage Grouse are most common from mid-March to mid-May.

The Sage Grouse is one of the most unique and unusual feathered creatures in Wyoming, but it’s probably the strutting and the drumming that sets this Wonder of Wyoming apart. It’s quite the show, when the Sage Grouse performs.
