The greater sage-grouse inhabit sagebrush grasslands throughout the western United States. Each spring the males gather on breeding grounds called leks, where each male stakes out a small area and begins an elaborate “strutting display.” They are hoping to attract the attention of the females who come to pick their perfect mate. Sage-grouse populations have declined significantly due to habitat loss. The federally protected land where many of the remaining birds live is a vital part of ensuring that the sage-grouse will continue to strut for generations to come.
